I’m back, I’m still preserving and this time it’s personal!
i have briefly, mentioned my love of preserves and it’s ability to brighten up my vegetarian sandwiches. I love the tangy, aromatic sludge and it’s contrast with the creamy, crumbly cheddar that is still my ‘go to’ cheese despite having tried many varieties.
I started making my own chutney a long time ago now and was impressed by how easy, how cheap and how consistent it was. I have had many culinary disasters in my time but never in the chutney arena.
One of my favourites is onion chutney – a great balance of sweet and sour, rich and glossy, it’s a real palate pleaser.
I used this recipe with a few adaptations when I made some chutney recently http://realfood.tesco.com/recipes/caramelised-onion-chutney.html .
I’m not supposed to have tasted it yet, but I couldn’t wait – it’s delicious!
I’ve a craving for some spiced apple chutney – another favourite! So that may be my next project. Until then…
It is with a watering mouth I say:
It’s only Vintage but I like it!
