spanish chutney
Spanish salsas and chutney - cupboard fillers for the winter and when you can make your own they taste even better. One of the main ingredients is of course the tomato, vine ripened if possibe but anything ripe and red will do - the ugly ones pack the most flavour!

If you are lucky enough to have a local Spanish greengrocer who grows his own or get given tomatoes by your Spanish neighbours then why not try making a chutney, just as easy as a Spanish salsa but with more clout after it has matured, brilliant with a wedge of Manchego or Manchego reserva and especially tasty for some reason in winter...

Recently we really got into Spanish style chutneys, there are so many great ingredients you can put into them including spices and if like us you like a bit of chilli to liven things up then some of the red stuff adds a great kick.

You can find our recipes for Spanish chutney, salsas, pate and dips on this page (we also love anchovies which make a regular appearance).

Enjoy!

  • Shaved Brussels Sprout Potstickers

    I’ve mentioned before my weakness for fried food. It’s definitely a group of foods I don’t eat often and it’s rare that I make anything fried at home (the oil!) However, over the years, I’ve morphed how I make dumplings to help give me a taste of something salty and crunchy. These Brussels sprout potstickers [...]
