Spicy Plum Chutney
WINNER of a 2013 Sofi Award GOLD MEDAL! (...the Oscars of the speciality food world)
Our fresh-faced Plum graduated magna cum laude from its East Coast prep school and went on a tour of India, where it was introduced to a strange incense by a friendly snake charmer, and finally returned to Virginia a year later with a subversive streak of ginger and mustard seed. It’s excellent paired with a strong cheese like cheddar, and all meats. Our chutneys are family-made in the blue hills of Virginia with our favorite spices, real fruit, and none of that funny stuff.
Our best selling chutney is a robust gingery balance of spicy and sweet that stands up to strong cheddars and makes a perfect glaze for roast pork.
Ingredients: plums, sugar, brown sugar, apples, apple cider vinegar, raisins, onions, ginger, mustard seed, salt, red pepper flakes.
