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.

Christmas is on its way! Forget cinnamon/pine scented candles, absolutely the most Christmassy smell I’ve ever smelled is this spiced plum chutney bubbling away on the stove. It’s got figs, oranges, cranberries and cinnamon (and plums!) and is Christmassy enough to inspire Scrooge himself to start singing “Mary’s Boy Child”. I adapted the recipe from one at Allotment Growing Recipes, but there’s also a great-looking one at Domestic Sluttery that I’ll try one day.
