Can this be stored like normal chutney in a jar in a dark cupboard for a year plus? - 13 Sep 2010

This is a fantastic courgette chutney recipe! It's great for using up that glut of courgettes. I followed to the letter, just adding half of a red pepper, finely chopped, for some nice flecks of colour. I also found that I needed to cook for more like 90 minutes to reach the right consistency. This chutney is fab for sandwiches, with roasted meats, pork chops, with cheese... the list goes on! Thanks Margaret! - 05 May 2011
