MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2011

"This makes a whole lot of chutney- might try to half it next time. 1 jalapeno didn't add any heat at all- would deff suggest 2 peppers. Also it tasted too sweet for me, I will deff cut back on the sugar and spice content. With a little tweaking this would be better for me... but I will try it again"
