what to do with pear chutney?

I just received a delicious-looking jar of pear chutney from Frog Hollow Farms. How do best make use of it?

  1. - crostini (or napoleons) with wilted spinach, caramelized onion and blue cheese or goat cheese
    - serve as part of a cheese plate
    - spoon over vanilla ice cream or yogurt
    - serve as an accompaniment to chicken, turkey, turkey burgers!), pork chops, pork loin...

    1. One of my favourite Christmas parties always has baked brie and pear chutney on baguette rounds. In a room of many appetizers it is my perennial favourite.

      I have also had it as a part of cream tea with crumpets and clotted cream.

        forgot about baked brie - delicious suggestion!

      2. We make little fritters from pate choux with a lot of Stilton & Gruyere cheeses. Or just use a gougere recipe - it's just baked instead of deep-fried. Pear chutney is just outstanding with these!

        1. How about a ham sandwich with havarti, sliced apple and the chutney?
