Christmas gift for all the family

Now Christmas is behind us, i wanted to share a gift we gave without spoiling the surprise!

After a bumper harvest of tomatoes and courgettes during our first year of gardening, we produced some chutney which we gave away in some lovely kilner jars – a food gift that keeps on giving!

125g brown sugar
1/2 tbsp mustard seeds
