Recipe Tips:

Use organic ingredients for pear chutney if you can, for the best taste, and also so you aren't eating concentrated amounts of pesticides and herbicides with your chutney.

Cooked chutneys like this take a while to cook, but don't need much attention, so your chutney can simmer while you're cooking other things.
