The Whole World in Your Kitchen

The rain was pouring down, no surprises there, as I made chutney on Saturday from our garden’s produce – courgettes that had swollen into marrows, windfall apples of various types and shapes, a few carrots and onions, plus some sultanas and a bit of ginger and cinnamon. I quite like making chutney… not too much to go wrong. I have to confess that I don’t use a recipe – just sling it all in with some malt vinegar and sugar. Perhaps not a good confession from a cookbook writer, but I guess we all do it!

Oh no, this is a real roll-your-sleeves-up corporation that means business.
