This Pumpkin Chutney is so simple, you’ll be wondering what took you so long to make it. Perfect gift for upcoming holidays as well!
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!
Chutney 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 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.
