New to pickling and making chutney and would welcome some advice

Luckily no signs of chewing to date (thank goodness, I'm scared still of rodents!). I've cleared a space out in the cupboard under the stairs for my next batches. I'm getting quite addicted to this preserving lark, tomato and celery and a ratatouille chutney are my next two ventures (recipes courtesy of a Jill Nice book), lovely way to spend an afternoon. I know what you mean about making sure there's some left: although I have only been making chutney for a month or so it's amazing how many friends and family are really keen to try it, and make suggestions for the next lot!

Many thanks; that's a relief, I really enjoyed making them and was looking forward to eating and sharing them too!!

Hi,

I'm new to making preserves and would welcome some advice. I have made some beetroot chutney and stored it in a box in the shed, which I thought would be cool and dry. just checked it and the seals are still intact, contents look ok but mould has appeared in places on the outside of the jars. My first inclination was to chuck out the contents but then wondered if it would be safe enough just to clean down the outside of the jars and am keen to learn from others experiences.
