speed making runner bean chutney

Runner bean chutney on a rainy dayWaiting in for our friends from Australia to arrive a few weeks ago I made a second batch of runner bean chutney using the last of the Polestar beans from the plot.  It was super speedy to make as I used the surplus vinegar drained off from the first batch.  I’ve only got one jar of the original runner bean chutney left:  yes, I am still eating it with salad even though it’s not the weather for it!

On a completely different note, entries for this month’s No Croutons Required frugal challenge have now closed and you can VOTE here if you think my Green Tomato soup would be a worthy winner.  The recipe with the most votes will be announced on the 31st of October.

    I like the idea of runner bean chutney, though I can’t quite imagine the taste. I made *loads* of apple chutney this year.

    Ann – how exciting :o) I’ve not won anything since 2003, an autobiography of Jack Russell, the English Cricketer, in a free drawer and not on any merit of my own! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

    Rachel – I love runner bean chutney because you can eat it straight away and it’s quite vinegary which I like. The beans don’t break up and the liquid is quite runny so I mostly use it as a salad dressing mixed with mayo. I’ve not got round to making apple chutney yet… just received some more crab apples from a friend yesterday and found some quinces a couple of weeks ago so will have to go on my ‘to make’ list. Were you pleased with how yours turned out?

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
