….to a load of delicious chutney.
I found a great recipe last year – spicy squash and apple chutney – and because my squash harvest this year is exceptionally good, I decided to make some.
All it took was a trip to an old abandoned allotment site and pick some apples. I cannot imagine gardening there – the soil is quite poor, full of stones and the whole site is rather deserted. But the main thing is that the apple trees are doing well, despite being neglected, unpruned etc. They’re Bramley and that was perfect for my recipe.
The preparation is quite fiddly but it is well worth it. Another good thing about squashes is that they keep well, the important thing is to cut the stalk as long as possible if you’re not going to use them soon – they keep better that way.
