Blackberry chutney
Homemade chutneys can be made from fruit, vegetables or a mix of both, slow cooked with herbs, spices, vinegar and sugar to your liking, and then left in a pot to mature and mellow before eating. This richly spiced blackberry chutney recipe from Peter Joseph makes a great sauce to add a little spicy warmth to your favourite dishes.
