Choko's and Chutney




The Choko vine is laden and yielding a bumper crop. So my mother makes chutney for everyone before the vine dies off in winter. You can also make a maralade from them too. They can be baked as well. Boiled/steamed is rather plain, but goes nice with other vegetables.  If you add some cinnamon and sugar to Choko's you can make a mock type apple struddle.

The mock apple struddle is on our 'to do' list.

We like our Choko Chutney with corned meat.
