Makes 1 quart (liter)

The sweet flesh of winter squash is elevated to a whole new level when fermented with special ingredients and spices. Enjoy this flavor-popping chutney as an appetizer with some soft cheese and crispy crackers.

Or, better yet, make yourself a British Ploughman’s Lunch, a portable meal packed for a ploughman (or plowman) to take into the fields: crusty bread and cheese plus pickled onions and a relish or chutney.

Fermentation Length: 7 to 14 days
Salt Percentage: 2.5% (see Recipe Notes)

As the days shorten and the nights become frosty, the markets abound with winter squash in all shapes, sizes, and colors. This recipe uses butternut squash, but any firm-fleshed winter squash can be used.
