Citrus Chutney brightens meats, poultry, or cheeses.

  • Meat & Poultry Condiment: Place a spoonful on top of roasted or grilled lamb, chicken, or pork. The citrus perfectly accents the juicy fats of the meats.
  • Appetizer: Bake Brie cheese until soft. Spread Citrus Chutney on a piece of toast, add a slice of soft warm Brie cheese. Yum!!!
  • Cheese plate: Select your favorite assortment of cheeses- we love the combination of Jarlsberg, Parmigiano Reggiano, and aged goat. Arrange cheese on a wooden platter and add condiments either directly on platter or in small bowls: Citrus Chutney, Lavender Honey Almonds, Spiced Olives. Elegant. Tasty!
