Chutneys are wonderfully versatile. My Pear and Honey Lime Chutney recipe gets its sweetness from our backyard homegrown fresh pears and honey; its spicy warmth from onions and fennel, and a touch of citrus from the lime. That is some very lively flavor going on there! What should I pair it with? (No pun intended). I selected grilled Johnsonville mild Italian Sausages. What a great idea! Enjoy!
