Christmassy Red Onion and Sultana Chutney

Christmas is well and truly on its way so what better time to start getting organised! This Christmas chutney lasts up to three months in the fridge so if you make it ahead that’s one less thing to do. It’s quick and easy and if I do say so myself it tastes AMAZING – just try not to eat it all before Christmas! If you want to get creative then this chutney is great for a homemade Christmas gift to give away at this festive time. I think that when I’ve been given a homemade foodie gift it tastes even better.

This chutney smells and tastes just like Christmas, it’s not overpowering but the cinnamon comes through to give it a warmth. The wine and the vinegar both give it sweetness and its busting with flavour. The sultanas add to the festive twist making it even more Christmassy.

At the weekend Dean and I wanted to sample the chutney with some cheese so we went and bought a LOT of cheese. Dean is a massive fan of cheese, in fact he loves it so much that when he was at university studying film making he made a short film all about cheese. It was called Made Backwards – as in the old joke: Which cheese is made backwards? (The answer is of course Edam!). His film won an award at a national student film festival, so cheese has all ways been a big part of Dean’s life! We often go round to friends and have a cheese and wine evening and when we have parties or even get invited to a party Dean is in charge of the cheese board!

This recipe makes enough for 6 small jars, so that’s a good few presents taken care of. We used the Kilner jars from Amazon which add to the rustic feel. If you want to get yourself some use the link below:
