Mr Evans' Rhubarb Chutney

Where is it from?

ACT Heritage Library

What's the story?

From the recipe book of Christina Anne Hart, nee Jamieson (1891-1992).

Anne Hart was a talented home cook.  Her personal recipe book is a collection of handwritten and clipped recipes.  Anne notes the name of the person from whom she obtained the recipe and her own amendments to them.
