“Chutneys are so much more than a friend of cheese, and can be an addition to so many meals,” says David Atherton. “I pick at chutney with chopsticks as I’m eating a stir-fry, add it to tortilla wraps, nestle a dollop next to my salad for work and alongside most curries. Try it, and it will soon become as ubiquitous as tomato ketchup.”

Author: David Atherton


  • Saucepan
  • 2 300ml jam jars


  • 300 g carrots peeled and coarsely grated
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 150 ml cider vinegar
  • 150 ml water
  • 110 g soft brown sugar
  • 2 tsp nigella seeds
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 3 g salt


  • Add the carrots to a pan with the onion and garlic, then add all the other ingredients. Bring to the boil and simmer vigorously for five minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 45–50 minutes until thickened. You’ll need to periodically stir to avoid it sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • While the chutney is simmering, you’ll need to sterilise your jars. Preheat the oven to 160°C fan (180°C/350°F/gas mark 4), wash the jars as normal and place on a baking tray. Once the oven is at temperature, put the jars in for 15 minutes.
  • Fill the hot jars to the top with the chutney, fit the lids on tightly, then store for at least a month before eating. Store in the fridge once opened and use within one month.


This recipe fills two 300ml jars.
