How would you use Plum Chutney?

Just finished making a batch of plum chutney with ginger, garlic, mustard seeds,hot pepper flakes, onion, raisins, sugars and vinegar. I love it on burgers and with virtually any meat but wonder if there's any dish you'd make using it as a main ingredient not condiment? Thanks.

  1. Don't know about a main ingredient but I make a cranberry cheesecake that I think substituting plum chutney for the cranberry would be divine.
    How about with some meat in empanadas or on a pizza, instead of marinara sauce, poured over some cream cheese and eaten on crackers, as a pasta sauce. Just a few off the top of my head.

    1. i'd love it in a grilled cheese sandwich - sourdough, Manchego, arugula or spinach...or layered in a tart crust with chevre and baked.

          ha! i take it you approve of my suggestions? oh how i miss sourdough...

      1. This is one of those played out but delicious party food ideas: sandwich between a sliced wheel of brie, wrap in puff pastry and bake. Good to put out as a starter. Seems to be a hit whenever it's served.

        You could also serve it as part of a cheese course.

        1. Thanks for the ideas. Tonight putting it on a bacon cheddar cheeseburger.....tomorrow who knows.

          1. Put it in Chicken or Turkey salad.

            Plum chutney sounds like a wonderful idea!!!!

            I would definitely serve it alongside grilled or roasted pork tenderloin. Yum!

            I love the cheese ideas.
