As much as I love to prepare Indian style fiery, tangy and sweet chutneys to go with our Indian meal, I also love to whip up English sweet and mildly spiced chutneys too. Ones that perk up your cheese and biscuits or jazz up your sandwiches if you use it as a filling. I adore these fruity chutneys which wonderfully works alongside Indian meals too.

These chutneys are so versatile, sometimes I add in plain yogurt and serve with crisps, tortilla chips or toasted pitta bread as a starter. Have you tried roasting root vegetables with it? Just mix a tablespoon of chutney and little olive oil, drizzle on parsnips, sweet potato or carrots. My husband has his own way to use it, he would spread a teaspoon full of his favourite chutney on whole grain toast, and sprinkle some cheddar cheese before grilling again, so delicious!

So I have a plenty of reasons and excuse to prepare another batch of new chutney recipe as we have finished my summer batch of Apricot, Sweet Pepper and Thyme Chutney. This time I decide to make Carrot, Tomato and cardamom Chutney, for this recipe I did not have to go to markets or shop, All the ingredients are from my pantry and direct from my vegetable patch as it was overflowing with carrots and tomatoes.

One afternoon, everything went into a pan and in less than an hour, I had this finger-licking and delightful chutney ready, once it was cooled, stored in sterile jars and ready for through winter months. Now that Christmas cheer is in the air its a reminder to pack a few gifts and pressies for friends and family because Christmas is all about joy and festive cheer. It's also about caring, giving and receiving. This homemade chutney makes a great edible gift for a foodie friend or a family member as homemade gifts are so special, there is always a personal touch.
