Nigel Slater's Hot, Sweet Plum Chutney
Not much is better on a leisurely weekend afternoon than a snack of sharp cheese, good bread, and a homemade preserve or two (and maybe a glass of wine). Nigel Slater's Hot, Sweet Plum chutney from Ripe is just the thing to round out a few slices of cheddar.
Made with plums, raisins, cider and malt vinegars, and just enough muscovado sugar to sweeten and thicken the preserve, this chutney puts all of those jars languishing in fridge doors to shame. At once spicy, sweet, and tangy it plays well not only on a cheese board, but also piled on leftover roast pork and smeared on a turkey sandwich.
