Peppadew Chutney

Peppadew is the brand name of sweet piquant peppers (a breed of capsicum baccaum) originally grown in the Limpopo province of South Africa and Pete and I are lucky enough to have these magnificent peppers growing in our garden back home.  If you are unable to find these, you can replace them with any other sweet piquant pepper or chilli.
