Rhubarb and Chilli Chutney

Rhubarb and Chilli Chutney

We're at the start of the chutney, pickle, jam and jelly season when surplus fruit and veg can be preserved for later use. The main-crop rhubarb season is getting into full swing and in my opinion Rhubarb makes one of the best chutneys. That is with the exception of peach, my favourite, but unfortunately something that doesn't grow locally!

To ring the changes with no effort, I added a couple of chopped chillies to my usual rhubarb recipe, upping the heat considerably. It's not now something that you slather all over your sandwich, it now has to be treated with respect!

Later in the year, I hope to buy my chillies locally, probably from the Charnwood Chilli Co. - which reminds me - I must put an entry for them in the directory.
