Chutney Pairings just for Christmas

Christmas is a particularly tasty time, so naturally it’s one of our favourite periods of the year! With so many tastes and flavours to explore and revisit, it can sometimes be difficult to know what to pair together, creating something truly tastier than the sum of its appetizing parts.

Well, you needn’t worry; the team here at Farraday’s are on hand with our chutney pairing suggestions to ensure that you have a very delicious Christmas and a yummy New Year!


Apple, Date & Ginger Chutney

A classic combo. This is the perfect chutney to enjoy alongside your pork pies, cheese and crackers and makes a great addition to the table when having a buffet-style meal. The apple flavours complement the pork perfectly, while the ginger kick gives it a little festive flavour!

Alternatively, match this chutney up with your leftovers, Boxing Day pork to give your Christmas feast a new lease of life.


Beetroot, Orange & Ginger Relish

This chutney offers something a little different. Beetroot, orange and ginger are the most prominent flavours, but their flavours are held beautifully among the apples, dates and apricots which provide a real depth and richness to the palette.

The tanginess of this chutney creates a delicious juxtaposition against duck – should your Christmas be quackers – so why not enjoy it on the side of your plate or even try smothering it onto duck breasts in the last few minutes of cooking?

To really complete this pairing, try adding a ripe Chardonnay with your meal. The slight sweetness of this wine matches well with fatty meats, such as the duck, but it is not so sweet that it will become overpowering when combined with the orange and beetroot flavours that pierce through the chutney.


Cumberland Pickle

This delicious and tangy chutney has a rich and deep flavour consisting of pickled vegetables – including carrots and courgette, as well as dates and sultanas. It offers a slight spice to any dish it accompanies, making it a great and simple trick to liven up your festive leftovers or spice up those starters.

Try teaming it up with festive nibbles such as pigs in blankets or smear it on leftover lamb to give them a tasty tang.
