A Conversation for Chutney

Chutney: texture or taste?

Post 1


Great recipes for apple and tomato chutney. Thank you.

Do all chutneys taste the same? After all, the basic ingredients (the spicy ones) are fundementally the same from one recipe to another. Isn't it the colour and texture of chutneys that differs?

Hi Frenchbean - sorry, I've only just noticed your question!

I agree about the colour and texture but would say that yes, they do taste quite different also. I find that the Apple Chutney is more sweet than sour (or spicy) and has a very definite fruity taste - which makes it ideal for use with a good Chesire, Red Leicester, Caerphilly or Double Gloucester, whilst the tomato ones are much spicier and go best with a much stronger cheese such as Mature Cheddar, Stilton or cold meats. smiley - smiley

I agree with you! Since posting that question, I decided to do some experiments with different chutneys and have come up with some really fantastic results, all of which taste completely different. So I shall now eat my words, or rather find a heap of cheese and ham and eat that, to accompany the dozens of bottles of chutney that are cluttering up the kitchen. smiley - rofl
