Welcome Maggie

I think you will enjoy the Branston recipe - the sauce is a little thin, so next batch I will be working on thickening that up, but it tastes just like the real deal.

Maybe I will add a little thickener or dry potato flakes to get the right consistency...

Would I be right in thinking that Arcadia is near Yarmouth?

Oooh, hello. Now you're here it means I'm not the new girl anymore. I found this site when I was looking for ideas to preserve chillies.

Since I've been making my own pickles and chutney, I don't buy Branston any more, so when I had some not very long ago, I found it somewhat lacking. If you are interested, I use a recipe for marrow and tomato chutney which I think is excellent, a really good all rounder. It sounds a bit bland, but I promise you it isn't.
