Today's chutney is

rhubarb.



In the last week I've picked 2kg of rhubarb from our plants, and I think there's at least another kilo left to go

Sure! it was

1kg rhubarb - chopped
2.5 cups white vinegar (although I used 1 cup cider and the rest white)
3 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon white mustard seeds
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder (my addition - recipe calls for 1 teaspoon ground ginger but I didn't have any)
1.5 cup sultanas (I used 1 cup sultanas and 1/2 cup currants)

bring to boil once sugar has disolved then simmer until you get the desired "chutneyish" consistency :*)

Be warned I adapted this recipe so can't vouch for the taste. Smelt good though.
