This Mildly Spiced Butternut Squash and Golden Raisin Chutney was scrummy.
I don't really like sweet relishes or chutneys , but this one was very reminisce of the Red Chili Spiced Pumpkin Chutney I made a long while back and I loved it.
I made this Spiced Butternut Squash and Golden Raisin Chutney over the weekend as I had picked up two squashes at a bargain price, after filling the sterilised jars I had a little left over - they call it cooks treat or cooks perks, but it was plenty for me to share with D. We had it in the evening with cheddar cheese crackers that we had left over from Christmas and New Year.
Taking of crackers, someone at a works bring and share food day bought in some homemade Iced Custard Square Slices, what some of you may call Iced Vanilla Custard Slices. I've been wanting a recipe for this for a long while as its one of my Dads favourite sweet treats. He has a thing for cold set custard, as his other favourite Sweet treat is Custard Nutmeg in Shortcrust Pastry Tarts. I had a slither of one of these Ice Custard Square Slices and noted the pastry base was actually made from Jacobs Crackers, not puff pastry. I was both amazed and bemused. I do prefer proper pastry, but some people would not notice the difference. I asked for the recipe from the person who made it and she laughed as she wrote it down for me. Telling me it was one of the world's easiest and economical recipes. I hope to make it soon for my father and see what he thinks.
Anyway, back to this Spiced Butternut Squash and Golden Raisins Chutney, I also adored the colours so much: like golden embers from a log fire not only warming your cheeks but your belly too. I am sharing this with #CookBlogShare hosted by Easy Peasy Foodie.
