I have this newfound love for chutneys. Or maybe I should say for making chutneys as they are so simple, delicious and very versatile too. This particular chutney I actually made almost a year ago when shooting for the new cookbook that just came out for Almeerse Weelde. It’s a cookbook featuring a lot of produce that can be found here in Almere. Found and grown I should say. And you know I tend to complain about the culinary state of things here in my home town. It’s as with our new bazaar… I was there last weekend to get some supplies but it seems like it is already getting emptier. Less stalls and certainly less people.. Not a good sign!

Pumpkin Chutney

I seriously hope that they pull through as I liked the fact that there is now a spice guy with a stand but I know that if they do not get any customers.. it is doomed.. We will still go there and hope it improves over time. But I seriously think that the market in Almere is somehow a tough market. Why? I don’t know. Go to any place in Amsterdam and it’s filled with people. Put something similar up in Almere and it goes bankrupt within a few months… Maybe I should move.. I don’t know.

In any case; back on subject; this delicious pumpkin chutney is perfect for any autumn dish so hope you make it as I will sure be making it again soon!
