A Vegan Christmas: Fast Festive Chutney

If you made or are planning to make my sweet chilli jam you might want to make this one too. They are a match made in heaven and both go amazingly with vegan cheese & crackers.

This chutney is unlike other chutneys that require time to mature, this one is ready to eat the second it is cold and is super fast and easy to make. It along with my sweet chilli jam would make a perfect last minute gift,
