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?
