Zucchini Chutney Recipe

Zucchini Chutney Recipe

There always seems to be a glut of zucchini...with every gardener having more than he or she can use! So I have spent lots of time looking for different uses for zucchini. One day I was thinking of my homemade chutney and suddenly decided to use zucchini in it. Now we serve it with almost anything - hot dogs, roast beef, chicken, as a sandwich spread - you name it.
