The pie recipe is adapted from a family recipe that was given to me by my sister's husband's mom! We love it!! Such a great pie to feed a hungry family! There is nothing more important then being together and enjoying a good meal together! The chutney is something I put together to incorporate the foraged ingredients we had to use for the challenge xx
