ALL DAY RIBERRY CHUTNEY!

February 26, 2019 | 0 Comments

I’m more than just a pretty face for an evening of fun! I’m a fabulous Chutney that’s great for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and between meals and for Drinks too!  I’m additive free and with no artificial flavours and/or colours I work with everyone 😋!

 

My tart and spicy, Riberry flavour makes me Australia’s answer to cranberries and I’m the ideal companion to roast 🍗turkey and lamb.

 

But have you also considered what other meals, recipes and dishes could seriously lift their game with just a dash of Currong Comestibles Spicy Riberry Chutney?  Keep reading!

 

BREKKIE:

    

Take breakfast up a notch with just a ‘smear’ of Spicy Riberry Chutney instead of the usual tomato sauce on your usual Bacon & Egg Roll! It’s unique blend of ingredients and spices lend a triple ‘s’ taste sensation (sweet, savoury and spicy) to this breakfast basic.

 

Looking for variations to this classic AM starter?  Try turkey bacon instead of the traditional pork.  Sydney’s Black Forest Smokehouse makes and smokes this delicious treat in-house 😋!

Prefer no meat?  Try lightly grilled haloumi cheese and fried egg with a touch of the Chutney! 

Going Vegan?  Add a touch of the Chutney to sautéed tofu for a flavour boost.

 

 

LUNCH:

        

An all-time favourite is a Turkey & Brie sandwich.  Add a touch of Oz with our Riberry Chutney rather than the standard cranberry sauce. The slight spiciness of the Chutney gives added depth to the fillings instead of just sweetness.

 

                                                                                

Or chillout with a Ploughmans Lunch for a ‘no work’ meal.  The Chutney is a beautiful taste break with the rest of the assorted nibbles!

 

DINNER:

      

Go traditional and our Spicy Riberry Chutney goes perfectly with any roast although our favourites are Turkey and Lamb. (And it’s even better on a cold leftover sandwich the next day!)

 

ANYTIME SNACKING:

A bit of this and a bit of that is the perfect combo for Chutney. Just a few spoonfuls add the perfect dimensions to a quick snack. We’ve paired it here with some pate and cheddar for a filling snack. 

                                                                               

 

 

 

So I’m ready to start ‘hanging out’ anytime you want.  

 

PS – I’m even fabulous in cocktails. Have you tried an Oz Red Snapper?   

BTW I’m Vegan too 🍏😍!

CC Easy Entertaining Mini Nosh*platter

September 08, 2017 | 0 Comments

It’s Spring and time to start edging away from stews and casseroles into lighter menu options.  Why not start with a simply 4C platter? Cheese, Crackers, Charcuterie and Chutney.  They’re simple, easy and satisfy a multitude of appetites and tastes.

Think of these plates as ‘Cheese Plus’.  Cheese may be the ‘biggie’ but all of the accompanying elements are just as important to round out the ‘platter’ flavours.  The Crackers hold the cheese but they also hold the patè.  And the Chutneys add a sweet and tart bite and point of difference to both the cheese and the ‘meat’ elements.

While big platters are great for big crowds here are two mini combos, made with NSW artisan goodies and our special Chutneys to get you started.

 

Are you a culinary traditionalist? Do you love a Ploughman’s Lunch with the traditional cheddar cheese wedge and cold meats? Here’s the 2017 Sydney market version, our perfect Traditional nibble platter:

Traditional Mini Cheese platter w/ Spicy Riberry Chutney

Cheese:   Harrigans Vintage Cheddar (The Hunter Valley Cheese Factory)

Crackers:   Falwasser Rosemary & Sea Salt Crispbread

Chutney:   Currong Comestibles’ Spicy Riberry Chutney

Charcuterie:   Julianne’s Kitchen Duck & Currant Paté

 

Or would you prefer something different to nosh on for your afternoon goodies. Maybe something visually different to your traditional platter? What about this option with smoked fish swapped for the traditional patè  and a soft goats’ cheese. Our Minimalist nibble platter:

 

Cheese:   Willowbrae Chèvre (Goat) Cheese

Crackers:   Falwasser Activated Charcoal Crispbread

Chutney:   Currong Comestibles’ Rainforest Lime & Mango Chutney

Charcuterie:   Brillant Food’s Ocean Trout Gravlax

 

What are your Platter favourites?  Please let us know.  (The first 5 answers will get our Chutney Duos for their Spring platters!)

 

Enjoy

*One of the great things about multiculturalism is that you grow up with a wider selection of words to fit occasions, situations, foods, etc. And the words aren’t just generational slang but rather words that have a history. So it is with ‘nosh’ which is Yiddish for a snack. PS: it’s always called a ‘little nosh’ despite whatever size platter it is. (It’s a grandmother thing!)
