This chutney is delicious all throughout Autumn! It’s great as a condiment with chicken and on sandwiches. I really love it with brie cheese on crostini or to top baked brie.
This recipes makes a lot. I made 50 crostini (2 baguettes, 2 wedges of brie, 1 bunch chives) for an event and still had some chutney leftover for other recipes.
This chutney keeps for a while in refrigerator due to high vinegar content. Can be used for many dishes.
I developed this recipe for a contest and was part of a pumpkin recipe trip that was a Top Ten Winner, World Food Championships, Las Vegas, 2012.
