I love chutney, but carrot chutney is a new one for me; Marks and Spencer do an absolutely lovely Wensleydale cheese and caramelised carrot chutney sandwich that I wanted to be able to recreate at home. Carrot chutney isn’t something you can easily find, so I looked for recipes online, with not much luck. Nearly everything I found had things like sultanas added to it, which wasn’t right at all.

After a couple of experiments, I came up with this recipe. I recreated the sandwich and tried them side by side. It’s pretty damn close to the real thing. I used Wensleydale for authenticity, but this sweet chutney would go well with any salty and/or creamy cheese like feta, cheddar or goat’s cheese.

At my former job there was a canteen, and in that canteen they served soup every day for lunch. Occasionally, they served carrot and orange soup. It was always a good day when carrot and orange soup was on the menu. It’s quite a summery soup, especially if you blend it up at the end. I couldn’t find a recipe for this in my soup book, so I just kind of made this up. the exact measurements don’t really matter, but the orange flavour is quite strong, so taste as you go and add just enough orange juice.
