McQuade's Chutney is Good Stuff!

Chutney is a melange of fruity, spicy, and savory goodness that adds a burst of flavor to everything it touches.

Chutneys come from so many places -- South Africa, Britain, India, and Scotland, just to name a few. Until recently, I'd tried just about every chutney imaginable, except for Scottish Celtic chutney. That is, until I was introduced to McQuade's Celtic Chutneys made by the lovely Alison McQuade using her grandmother's recipes along with her own.

This isn't the first time I've sung the praises of McQuade's Chutneys. The first time was here, where I incorporated into a filling for some spicy, chewy ginger cookies.

One of Alison's latest chutneys is Plum and Black Pepper, and it tastes as tantalizing as it sounds. I highly recommend it with roasted pork or chicken, but it also works well with cheese, as in my Chutney Cheese Rolls. (Sorry for the lame photos.)

If you like chutney, you should try McQuade's! If you don't like chutney, you should try McQuade's. It'll change your mind.

It's THAT good!
