Courgette Chutney | Preserving Courgettes | Urban Homestead Life

If you like me are growing courgettes this year it is likely that you will at some point have more harvested than you will know what to do with. This happens most years to many fellow gardening friends. 

Over the years I've been experimenting with a variety of different ways to use and preserve courgettes and so I thought it was about time I shared them all with you. This particular post will be about Courgette Chutney, a great preserve that can be used with salads, cheese boards, in sandwiches and in any other way you enjoy using chutney. 

I've tried a variety of recipes for courgette chutney over the years and settled on one that we have tweaked slightly to suit our tastes. This is the page I typed up and added to our family favourites file of recipes that we keep in the kitchen. 

I haven't put a method on this recipe sheet because for this one I chop it all, put it in a pan and heat until the majority of the moisture has evaporated. Once it is sticky and chutney consistency I take it off the heat and decanter into sterilized jars. 

Here is a picture of my son harvesting the two different types of courgettes that we are growing at the allotment this year. A traditional style and a round one called 'Pepo'.
