Quince, Orange And Chestnut Chutney With Davidstow® Cheddar

Quince, Orange And Chestnut Chutney With Davidstow® Cheddar. Hello friends. So how are you today?

So do you like to make up a cheese board?

We love to make them here. All our family loves to eat cheese. A cheese board is perfect for any celebration.

Served up at a party. An after dinner party treat.

At an all you can eat buffet.

Or a Saturday night treat in front of the TV with a nice glass of red wine.

So yoday I am sharing a chutney recipe to serve up with your next cheese board party.

Quince, Orange And Chestnut Chutney With Davidstow® Cheddar:

This is a great festive chutney that pairs well with Davidstow® 3 Year Special Reserve Vintage and Davidstow® 18 Month Extra Mature cheddar.

Make the chutney well in advance to when you’d like to use it as it develops in flavour as the weeks go by.


4 quinces, peeled and diced

2 pears, peeled and diced

1 medium onion, peeled and diced

4g fennel seeds

10g mustard seeds

1 pinch saffron

7g ginger powder

320g white wine vinegar

150g sugar

Juice of 1 orange

2 ½ orange peel, grated using a fine grater

150g cooked whole chestnuts chopped. These can be found in most supermarkets

    I have to say this might be the best sounding chutney ever. I like the idea of combining orange with chesnut!

    I am an avid consumer of chutney but have never made my own…perhaps it is time I did! This recipe looks lovely
