What is Chutney?

Chutney is traditionally a spicy condiment made using fruits (and/or vegetables) in a sauce of vinegar, spices, and sugar. It's a tangy combination that makes the mouth water, and it can pep up the simplest of meals. Use it to enhance a sauce, or to add some zing to meat, fish or cheese recipes. Essentially, it is like ketchup but with extra versatility and variation.
