White dish with pumpkin chutney

I have to make a bit of a confession.  I’d never made pumpkin chutney in my life before this, and now that I know how I’m hooked and ready to keep making!

Pumpkin chutney jarChutney typically isn’t made with pumpkin, but the addition of it is fabulous. The aromatic combination of dates and spices is wonderful with the sweetness of the pumpkin. 

Jars of this would make great Thanksgiving or Halloween pumpkin gifts for your friends.

Before making this recipe, I’d honestly never even heard of chutney before. It wasn’t a common dish when I was growing up, and apparently wasn’t all that common to make either.

Part of the reason that I love cooking so much is that I can make recipes that I wouldn’t normally make. This pumpkin chutney is one of those recipes.

It’s good, it’s flavorful, and it honestly pairs up nicely with a ton of different foods.

This recipe makes 3 250g jars.

Make sure the jars are really clean and warm them in the oven.

Instructions

  1. Make a paste with the cornflour and spices by adding the extra 1/4 cup vinegar and mixing until there are no lumps.
  2. Heat the vinegar and sugar and stir until dissolved. Add the onion and pumpkin. When they are soft, add the dates and cook until they are soft too, stirring often.
  3. Add the spice mixture and simmer until the chutney thickens.
  4. Pour into hot jars and cover.
This keeps for ages, but it probably won’t!  It’s far too delicious!

Serve with cold meats, sausages, hamburgers, Ploughman’s lunches, cheese, sandwiches, curries, and salads.  There must be more things you can eat it with, but that’s all I can think of just now.
