What exactly is chutney?
Many people often ask us, “What exactly is chutney?” The short answer is: Chutney is a fruit and vegetable jam that includes savoury ingredients like vinegar, mustard seed and onion. The long answer is a bit more complicated. But it all comes down to one and one thing only. To slow cook chutney properly, one must sit down for long periods. The history of chutney began with Major Grey. He was an Englishman in India, who took the native Indian chutney and developed a sweet, cooked, mango chutney that the world now knows as Major Grey’s mango chutney.
