carrot chutney

Makes 3 x 450ml Kilner clip jars Prep time: 30 minutes Cooking time: 45 minutes

Carrots are sweet with natural sugars and make a surprisingly scrumptious and piquant chutney. With warming spices and the lovely fruity notes of cyder vinegar it's a very versatile chutney to have about. It’s a terrific ‘stand in’ for mango chutney to serve with spicy foods but it is equally at home added to sandwiches and wraps.

TIP: For an easy base for Coronation Chicken - mix two or three tablespoons of carrot chutney with a couple of mayonnaise, a little apricot or plum jam, and fold in 250g diced cold cooked chicken.
