One of the culinary delights of my childhood was my nan's marrow chutney. Every year she used to make 2 large earthenware crocks of this chutney. She used to serve this for supper, along with my pop's pickled shallots, mature cheddar and fresh crusty bread. It was so good that I used to take marrow chutney sandwiches to school with me. Unfortunately my nan had never written the recipe down and it was lost with her demise. Fortunately several years ago a friend of my mother (Mrs Kibbles) gave us a jar of her marrow chutney. It tasted exactly like my nan's and I obtained the recipe from her. So to be fair this recipe should be called Mrs Kibble's marrow chutney, but to me it will always be my nan's.
Makes about 4 lb of chutney, to be safe have five 1 lb jars ready.
My nan's marrow chutney always seemed to taste at its best over the Christmas period (so it had matured for at least 10 weeks).

I've made a fair few chutneys in my time and I have to say that I'm afraid this is the worst I've ever tasted! I followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out far far too salty and more of a gloopy, lumpy paste than a chutney. I'm sorry but this one really won't be making it into my quick grab recipe book... - 30 Oct 2014
