Ideas For Using Chutney?
- Bacardi1 Jan 7, 2013 10:19 AM
I like different chutneys, but hubby hates the stuff. However, he does gift me with different types that he comes across, but since I'm the only one who eats it, I end up with several jars in the fridge that - outside of when I make an Indian dish - I'm at a loss what to do with.
At the moment, still unopened in my pantry, I have 2 bottles of "Apple Cranberry Chutney", & one bottle each of "Mango Chutney", "Mango Ginger Chutney", & good old "Major Grey's Chutney".
Any ideas outside of the usual Indian condiment?
Over cream cheese with crackers ( like you would with pepper jelly)
Instead of jam with baked Brie en croute
Marinades or sauces for grilling
our whole foods cheese person recommended fig chutney as a condiment for some cheddar cheese DH purchased. I bet some of your chutneys would pair well with cheese and crackers.
Love major grey chutney mixed with ceam cheese and serve with pumpernickle cocktail breads or carrs water crackers
The Apple/Cranberry Chutney makes wonderful glaze for pork roasts and chops.
The ginger one great on scones or as a sauce for chicken
Top a wheel of brie with any of them, wrap in puff pastry and bake.
Thanks for the link - that's right up my alley! And I agree about nixing the raisins, plus I just happen to have a bottle of one of my favorite curry powders on hand - "Penzey's Hot Curry Powder", which has a very nice "kick" that I really enjoy. Will be trying this as a sandwich very soon.
