“This recipe is taken from "New World Kitchen" by Norman Van Aken. If you are going to try at least one chutney recipe, I strongly suggest that this be the one, this chutney is wonderful and will keep covered in the refrigerator for about 6 weeks, trust me it won't last a week lol! I purchase my allspice berries in a bulk spice store. This is so good served with chicken or pork!”
