Christmas Crafting Day 9 & Chutney Question!

November 17, 2011 at 5:15 pm 4 comments

A close-up to start! And the glitter shows up too! (yay!)Such  a cute little  pillow box to put something special inside. A short post today I’m afraid as I’m full of someone elses cold! So kind of them to share.. I have another conundrum to ask of you; chutney! Having made the pear chutney, it seems a tad vinegary. Should I decant, add more brown sugar and hope that maturing over the month will solve it? My friend thinks so. Is there another solution you can suggest? The jam was lovely- I guess some recipes are better than others! Here’s the whole pillow box-

Have to dash and magic up something for tea. I could do with some kid-help tonight, although possibly not Will’s, who announced on his way home from nursery that he’d made cakes today. ‘Fantastic’ I said, ‘what else did you do?’ ‘Nothing’ he replied, ‘I just made cakes for 14 hours!. Bless, they obviously work’em hard at nursery! 

See you tomorrow- I will do a tutorial for rosettes (2 Ways) but can’t promise it’ll be tomorrow. I’ve finally finalised (can you say that!) what to make on Friday night so I may be a little busy both sniffing and prepping! See ya xx

    yes…let it mature. most chutney is vinegary when its first made . maturing takes 1-3mths. x

      Mwah! Thanks Emma! I haven’t decanted yet. I’ll put them somewhere cold and dark and hope for the best!! What are you making at the moment? x

    ps – don’t bother with adding more brown sugar….too much faff and not necessary. hope you haven’t already!
