Dark Beer Chutney

This dark chutney is made with apple, dried apricots, dates and raisins, and, of course, beer. I use Twisted Ankle dark beer which I get from The Laboratory in Lincoln. It is great on a cheese board and with cold meats, serve with a good bread such as sourdough, toasted.

Moroccan Apricot Chutney

The fragrant touch of orange flower water will have you dreaming of the East. It can be served with any cheeses and is especially good with Eastern pastries such as spanakopita and is a natural accompaniment to chicken or lamb.

Date & Preserved Lemon Chutney

This chutney is so addictive it won’t last long. Great with any vegetable dish, barbecued chicken or spicy roast lamb and couscous and is good in a cold meat sandwich. A spoonful or two is also excellent in a Moroccan tagine to give it depth of flavour, served as a condiment with any Middle Eastern dish and it goes perfectly with blue cheese. Its sweetness also goes well with tart Greek yogurt.

This dressing is fresh, tangy and vibrant. Packed with a punch, this dressing is perfect as a dipping sauce for rice paper wraps or use to dress an Asian coleslaw. Saute chicken or pork mince till cooked through, add a handful of mint and coriander, toss with chilli, lime and ginger and serve in a crisp lettuce cup.
