What could be better with a simple roast or grilled vegetables than a spicy fruit chutney? Nothing, except knowing it was a gift from someone you cherish. Consider including a decorative serving spoon, tied to the side of the jar with raffia.

Great recipe, something a little different that everybody really liked! And it goes just as well on a turkey sandwich after Thanksgiving. I think I'll cut the vinegar with half water next time though, came out pretty vinegary in the end. Lots of leftover, great gift idea
