Quince, Orange And Chestnut Chutney With Davidstow® Cheddar.

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.

Today 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.

    I do love a good chutney to go with cheese. I honestly don't think I've ever tried quince x

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