Pineapple Chutney

Quick and easy Pineapple Chutney recipe, perfect as a condiment with many Indian, Malay and Middle Eastern dishes. I also love using this chutney as a topping for canapés. If you can’t get hold of fresh pineapples, you can always use canned ones, preferably, with no sugar added, just in its own juices.
