You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

Uses for chutney?

Diggernotdreamer's post using up mincemeat by adding it to the scone recipe set me wondering.

I've lots of jam and chutney to use up and I've already given a lot away. It isn't hard hard to use up jam, ice cream sauce & top of sponge puddings come to mind. But chutney? There's a limit to how many ploughmans you can eat! Any ideas?

I would agree with that, I don't like it much, but if I have been given it I use it to add a bit of something else to curry or casseroles, the vinegar in it is also a useful tenderiser for cheaper cuts of meat for stew

Blitz it up and add it to tomato ketchup to make a lovely fruity brown sauce.

on pizza in the tomato sauce works well too.

i had a jar of overly sweet and sickly chutney and mixed bits in with pizza, into pasta dishes etc.

1/2 med onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
big handfull breadcrumbs
2 heaped tablespoonsBANANA CHUTNEY!

It adds a tangy, rich layer under the cheese on melted cheese on toast.

I like a bit stirred into red cabbage (cooked), as a side vegetable.
