5 Gr8 Ideas for Leftover Chutney!
OK, the holidays are over and if you’re like me you have a few ‘almost’ finished jars of leftover Chutney in the back of the refrigerator. Too much to throw away but not enough to pull out and pass around. Here are 5 ways to use it up and get ready for your next jar!
1. On a cheese platter. You don’t need much and chutneys have great flavours to offset the taste of the cheeses (a touch sweet, a touch tart, etc.). Just a spoonful completes a Ploughman’s Lunch too!
2. Curry side dish. Mix up a new taste sensation by adding the remnants of one jar to the next one you open. You’ll create something new to tantalise your guests’ taste buds.
3. Create flavoured Butter. Add Chutney to butter for extra flavour. Use this butter when you’re roasting chicken for both crispness and seasoning. You can even slip it under the chicken (or turkey) skin to add extra moistness. Roast Chicken Tips
4. Add a ‘smear’ to a sandwich to liven up the flavour. Our Spicy Riberry is beautiful on Turkey and Brie (instead of cranberry jelly). Does anyone else remember Cream Cheese & Jelly sandwiches? I loved them as a child but my adult taste buds prefer something ‘less sweet’ and Chutney fits the bill.
5. Glazing a ham. Mix Chutney with mustard for an ideal topping. Want a glaze with heat? Use Hot English mustard. For something tamer use American, German or Australian style mustard. The Chutney will add the tang to the glaze and will caramelise in the oven to give your finished ham a touch of crispness too.
