Silverbeet chutney

My sister used to make amazing chutney with silverbeet out of her garden.
Ive googled but cant find any recipes.
Has anyone got one lying around in an old recipe book or know how to make it? I always have way to much silverbeet and would like to make some.

There's chutney made out of absolutely any thing. At the end of the day, if you like it the way it was made, it tastes marvelous.

Therefore, chutneys have the same basic ingredients. Unless it isoverpowering in some way extra spicy or strong favoured, the chutney will taste like what you put in. Silverbeet is not over domineering and can be use in another chutney recipe you may have.

I use to make feijoa chutney every year. I discovered a granny smithchutney from UK. Actually was given one and tasted uncannily similar to my own feijoa chutney.

Well. I believe you can make a chutney out of basically any fruit or vegetable. If no recipe is forthcoming just use any from the net and you will be ok.
