"Never made chutney before. Served with turkey , Broccoli artichoke casserole and Sweet Potato Apple Salad w Poppy seed dressing (all TOH recipes) got excellent reviews. Took also to a potluck and again great reviews. Thought it would also be good over pound cake or warmed over ice cream. Love the flavors. Will definitely make again."

"I have made this for the last few years. I omit the onions and walnut to accomadate my family's taste. My dad actually ate is as jam on his biscuits."
