Hot Peach Chutney
- SUGGESTED USES
- THE STORY
The perfect addition to a ham sandwich.
Hot Peach Chutney gets its fruit-forward flavor from a perfect blending of peaches and apples. This savory chutney is then "kicked up a notch" with the addition of habanero peppers, and makes an ideal relish for hot and cold meats, fish, and chicken. Also delicious with curries and sandwiches.
- Use as a glaze for roast chicken or Cornish game hen, or serve the chutney alongside
- Delicious with ham
- A perfect pairing for creamy, soft rind cheeses like Brie and Camembert
- Use in place of mayonnaise in your favorite chicken salad recipe
- A wonderful addition to filling for stuffed eggs
The elder Turners know about chutney. Clare, whose parents served in the British Colonial Service, grew up in East Africa and is well versed in the spicy, fresh Indian chutneys as well as the sweeter British ones. Nevill grew up in England, where he ate chutney all the time. They met in the 1970's in the Caribbean, where they made mango and pineapple chutneys together. They relocated to the States over 30 years ago, and chose Virginia for its schools and business climate.
It was here they discovered the South's rich tradition of chutney making! The ingredients that go into making chutney and the ways in which they are used tend to reflect the local region in which they are made. For instance, in India, tamarind chutneys are used with curry. The English love Major Grey's chutney with Ploughman's Lunch, and mango chutney is served with fish in the Caribbean. New Englanders love cranberry chutney. In Virginia, the chutneys tend to be a bit sweeter and a little spicy, and go well with pork and chicken dishes.
The chutneys from The Virginia Chutney Company are made with all natural ingredients and contain no preservatives. Local fruits are used whenever possible. They are fat free, and can be used in a number of ways in your kitchen!
