Yolandie Horak's Family Recipe's

Hi all!

And here we meet on another marvellous Tuesday! The weather here is really cooling down nicely and stews and curries are simmering on most stoves around South Africa. I was privileged to have Yolandie Horak, my cuzzie and the stunning owner of http://thebloomincouch.blogspot.com share two of her family recipes with me. Man, my mouth waters just reading the ingredients! Check this out:

Tomato Chutney
1 kg tomatoes,
sliced2-3 Onions, finely chopped
1 Cup brown sugar
1 Cup apple cider vinegar
Pinch of salt


Cook all of the ingredients together in a pot for about 40 mins, or until thick. Transfer to bottles and allow to cool before refrigerating.

Carrot Chutney
1 bag of carrots, grated.
2-3 Onions, chopped
1 Green / yellow pepper, chopped
1 Tablespoon curry powder (of choice)
1 Cup vinegar
1 Cup brown sugar


Add all of the ingredients to a pot. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat. Allow to simmer for about 45 mins. Stir lightly from time to time. When the consistency is thicker, turn down the heat. Place in the bottles while still hot and turn on the lids immediately (this will help them seal airtight). Allow the chutney to cool completely before refrigerating. Can last up to six months if not refrigerated. Can add apples to stretch the ingredients and more sugar to taste.

Yolandie, thanks for these hun! They're great stuff and I'm so gonna be making me some home made chutney soon! Much love my cuzzie!!!
Join me tomorrow for an awesome restaurant review; this is gonna be a hottie!!!

Keep it real peeps!
