Spicy Pear Chutney

Pears, Pears, and more Pears.....
Fall is definitely in the air.
So I decided the best way to make the most of these Pears is to make preserves.

Now this recipe comes from Jane cottage at the crossroads.
First gather all the ingredients.   hmm looks like a lot on my counter doesn't it?
Wash the 250 ml jars. Put on your apron and wash and core those Pears.
Add all the ingredients into a dutch oven. Stir occasionally over 2 1/2 hours.
OH the anticipation ... Taste test.... HMMM  GOOOOD!!
We are now ready to pour the chutney into hot jars and seal.
Add your labels. They are now ready for gift giving.

Great for chicken , turkey, cheese and crackers... This recipe can be found here.

While I was making chutney I also make 2 loaves of zucchini bread. ( recipe here)
Won't you join me in a slice....

  7. I know there are a lot of ingredients in that chutney recipe, but it is so worth it! The pears on our tree are all gone now, and the chutney is even better now that it's been jarred for about a month now. Just gave some away this week.
