Omg. Almost 4 hours to make double this recipe, I thought I was going wrong.. I wasn't. This is awesome. Worth every minute of chopping, crying, prepping and stirring. Be prepared for it to take a lot longer, and have some cheese ready for when it's finished, you'll be glad. My 2kg of onions only made 1.4kg of finished chutney, but very, very worth it. - 21 Dec 2014
So good! I had planned to make this last year but never managed it. I made sure I made it much earlier this year to see if I wanted to make it again for Christmas gifts. The answer is YES! - 12 Nov 2015
