Not as expected!
Asked on 15 Dec 2019 by ellenmair
Hi, about a couple of months ago I made Delia’s Christmas Chutney (for the first time). I’ve just tried some and it doesn’t really taste like chutney - that is, no spice flavour. I followed the receipt to the tee, so I’m just wondering what I did wrong (if anything as I don’t know what it’s meant to taste like!), and also, is there anything I can do now to perk up the 6 jars..?
Thank you (with fingers crossed!)
We make this every year and we love it. I find the generous amount of allspice is enough.
Perhaps it’s just not to your taste.
You could infuse some vinegar with chilli and add that sparingly until you like the taste.
