A Trifle Rushed, where there has been a bit of a pickle. I read this post and knew I had all of the ingredients for this delicious Autumnal Chutney Recipe. I only have a few apples left on my little tree now and the blackberries are all finished. It is a shame to grow your own fruit and vegetables and let them go to waste so jam, pickles and chutneys are the order of the day. I made six jars of chutney. The smell was delicious as it bubbled away. It will be matured nicely ready for Christmas. I have never used blackberries in Chutney before, the flavour with the apple and cinnamon is something else. It also has a wonderful colour too. I think it will be the perfect accompaniment to cheese and cold meats, I also think it would be deliciously fruity with Turkey, Goose or Duck. I need some labels for this years preserves and they also need cute 'Mob Cap' lid covers. I think they will make great Christmas Gifts especially with Homemade Blackberry Brandy I have stashed away.
