Spicy Carrot Ginger Chutney
Posted on 28 February 2014
Is it a chutney? Is it a relish?
Maybe it’s a bit of both.
I’m calling it chutney since it contains a generous glug of vinegar.
This recipe is modified from a number of carrot chutney recipes (thanks, Kaela!) and was vaguely inspired by carrot ginger soup (with some thyme and a touch of a cayenne kick!), always a lovely winter treat.
Of course, due to the drought, we’ve barely had winter. Trees are already blooming. There have been several record-breaking days of heat. Asparagus appeared in the farmers market a couple of weeks ago.
Despite the odd spring-like weather, I came down with a doozy of a cold this week. I’m only starting to recover, but that’s why this post for Can It Up is so late.
I can’t wait to try this chutney again in a few weeks once the flavors have melded and the vinegar has mellowed.
How are you managing this odd winter?
