Chutneys are one of those foods that nearly every one has a version of. But I associate them primarily with Irish and Indian food. My Irish grandfather adored chutneys, however, the first time I had this wonderful condiment was in an Indian restaurant.

But we do learn something new everyday. I whipped up this batch when a friend of mine who lives in Alabama was visiting.

“What are you making?” she asked.

“Chutney,” I responded.

“Huh. I thought that was a southern thing,” she said.

“Really? Chutneys are popular in Alabama?” I asked.

“Are you kidding me? I’ve never been to a barbecue without one,” she said.

So I checked “learn something new today” off of my to-do list, and the two of us happily dug into this batch of spicy and citrusy chutney.

It’s perfect on sandwiches or a sliced baguette as a party appetizer. I hear it’s also great at barbecues.
