Eating My Way Through the Alphabet; Letter U

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food for Sharing: Uvetta Apple Chutney Grilled Cheese! When I was a kid, the word “chutney” meant something yucky with raisins and spices. That was before my taste buds matured and I acquired an exotic palate. Nowadays I appreciate the characteristics of fancy foods filled with specialized ingredients. By adding a spoonful of apple chutney to a grilled cheese sandwich, it transforms an ordinary meal into an extraordinary one. You should try it.

  1. I’ve lived my life searching for the perfect grilled cheese sandwich. This may well be the one because I have also long enjoyed chutney. My Great-Aunt Beulah actually introduced me to it!! PS: Your no-bake cookies were a hit with my husband, as I knew they would be.
