Chilli Tomato Tamarind Chutney, Sweet Chilli Dip, Teriyaki Sauce


Try these delicious accompaniments! They make lovely gifts, taste so much better than shop-bought stuff & you can bash out all of the above in under 90 mins! Use coconut sugar for a healthier alternative. Making your own preserves mean you can reduce the sugar content & use little tips like adding coconut sugar/ honey/ date syrup to sweeten & chia seeds to help thicken, to make much healthier alternatives.

My favourite chutney of all time is tomato, tamarind chilli chutney. It is tangy, sweet, a little sour & has mild heat. It’s a super addition to your cheeseboard & chums love this one! Tamarind has a sharp sour, slightly sweet flavour & adds a real depth. You can buy it as a paste in supermarkets & on-line. (Tamarind is also an ingredient in HP sauce!).
