Gluten Free Spicy Pumpkin And Apple Chutney Recipe

by Becky | Posted in Chutneys

Cheese is my weakness… this gluten free Spicy Pumpkin And Apple Chutney is so tasty and easy to make. It goes well with cheeses, crusty bread and cold meats, I have even been known to add it to a vegetable curry.

Great to make in the Autumn time when there is often a glut of ingredients. Enjoy.
