On the 7th day of Christmas I gave to Choccy & Furry

....a couple of jars of chutney

I had a glut of frozen Damsons, so I used Delias recipe to make Damson Chutney.

We also went scrumping at the beginning of autumn, my Mom told me that my dad used to take us out to collect apples off some trees on a walk we used to do to get to a lake. I took my sister and youngest along the route and after quite a bit of looking found the trees. Most of the ones we might have been able to reach had fallen off so I shook the tree as hard as I could while the other two watched where the apples fell.

We got a good bag full and I used about half to make Apple Chutney. Its a much milder taste than the Damson Chutney.

To see what I received check out my other blog.


  1. They look brilliant! What are the letters? a set? or stickers?

    Don't you dare buy rage against the machine! X-factor is traditional at Christmas!! ;) Going to see it next year!!!!

  2. I printed the labels onto paper, put double sided tape on the back, covered with sticky plastic and cut out.

    I do dare, I in fact want to! I think its quite a catchy tune. I'm fed up of Simon Cowell & his crownies dictating what will be number one, so heres a change to literally Rage Against the Machine!!!!!

  3. I'm gonna buy it too :P

    Love these little jars of chutney - what a fabulous gift!

  4. ...sorry hadn't finished typing when little fingers decided to press enter for me! Garrr!

    Was going to say - I don't think I've tasted a damson, what is it? Am imagining a plum type thing - bet I am completely wrong! :D

  5. Yay Carmen!!!
    Yup, A damson is similar to plums, but a bit smaller and slightly tarter taste (or at least the ones on my g'dads tree were which is where these came from)
