Chutney Workshop #1

They came, they chopped, they chutneyed!

On Sunday 28th February a team of dedicated Transitioners converted a box of locally-grown tomatoes donated by Yellow Box Organics into bottles of tasty chutney to be served at the Darebin Kite Festival.

While we are not much closer to understanding the difference between a relish, a pickle and a chutney, we did learn to chutneyfy almost anything using our taste buds, a simple sweet-acid-salt-spice formula and a very easy bottling technique that can also be used for jams, fruit and other preserves.

Check out these pictures as the workshop unfolded…
