  1. I had never had pomegranate until last year. We ‘wintered’ in California and the neighbors had pomegranate trees. They offered us as many as we wanted. OH MY! I loved them. Here in Wyoming I haven’t seen any pomegranate. But if I did I’d be loving that chutney.

  2. When I read on RFW that you made this chutney I could not click fast enough to read this recipe. I have got to add this to our food festivities because this just sounds so amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
