    Ummm!My notes: Unfortunately, I didn't have green onions ~ used onion powder instead. I think green onions would've been better. Also, I used Double Berry Pepper Jam (?) found on this website instead of chutney. Will try it with pecans next time. It was slightly sweet, but pretty for Christmas with the "red" t green.
