Easy to make, this accompaniment for Ham, Duck or Venison is a treat for that special meal and a great alternative to "pineapple".

This tasty, rich dark chutney is an ideal accompaniment to spice dishes, curries and the like as well as a condiment to accompany cold meats.


This works best with young, fresh, courgettes but zucchini can be used with the same success, except that you may have to slice the rounds in half if they are too large.
