Hello from Nice n Spice!
We are based in Brouains in Normandy, between the towns of Sourdeval and Mortain.
In 2008, after being here for 4 years, I found that because I enjoyed cooking, i.e. Apple Pie, Apple Crumble, etc., and people were giving me more Normandy Apples than we could use, and there is only so many you can eat.
I missed my Branston pickle, so I made an Apple Chutney that was similar, so that became the 1st chutney I made and it all started with that!
My friend then said to me if we like eating chutney, she could give me a Haricot Vert chutney recipe that belonged to her mother, "but you must not let anyone know the recipe", so that was the 2nd!
I grew tomatoes that year that just would not go red, so that became the next, Green Tomato Chutney, and now the chutneys have grown to 11 varieties!
Its been a lot of hard work, but its starting to become part of daily life now.
We do all 11 varieties in large and small jars, sets of 3 small jars and a special price for 3 large jars or more.
We would love to hear from you with any questions or comments:
