I have just discovered your blog when I did a quick search for simple plum chutney. I love what you are doing and will be back.
I will also link my blog to yours next week.
Many thanks.

Glad you liked it.

The secret is that you can use this basic cheese sauce for many things.

I use it on broccoli sometimes, as well as boiled potatoes.

Hope the plum chutney was a success. I really enjoy finding recipes that are a bit more 21st Century and still frugal.
