Dark Beer Chutney

This dark chutney is made with apple, dried apricots, dates and raisins, and, of course, beer. I use Black Hole Stout 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.

Doris Plum & Liquorice

This intriguing, elegant chutney is one of my favourites. Unlike most chutneys, the fruit is slow-roasted in the oven with liquorice and spices, to develop a rich, complex flavour. The chutney marries well with most cheeses and is a perfect accompaniment with venison, roast pork or duck. This chutney is “wetter” than the others and can be easily heated gently to act as a sauce. Seasonal product, not available year round.
