The flavour of the NEW vegan and gluten free Tracklements Special Edition Soured Plum & Black Pepper Chutney is truly multi-layered; it starts off sweet, yet peppery, hot and tangy and finishes with notes of ginger and garlic
An ode to Umeboshi (a traditional Japanese pickle made of ripe Ume plums pickled in salt and dried in the sun) it brings a unique burst of flavour to rice, grains and tofu; works as bit on the side for multiple curries and a rather tasty dipper for parathas and pakoras; goes fabulously with a flinty vintage cheddar and is perfect to take on, and enhance, the strong flavour of venison and duck.
Peter Morrell, editor comments “In many of the world’s cuisines fruity and sour ingredients like tamarind and pomegranate molasses are highly prized, and bring a unique dimension to dishes.
“With this new chutney, Tracklements have adopted and enhanced this tradition. The addition of piquant spices together with elements of ginger and garlic in the Soured Plum & Black Pepper Chutney gives food an entirely different and exciting new flavour profile. I’ve been using the chutney as a condiment with ramen noodles, and it has been making a substantial difference.”
Back in 1970, William Tullberg made the first British wholegrain mustard. 50 years on William’s son, Guy, carries on his legacy. However, that one mustard has matured into eight varieties and over 40 award-winning chutneys, relishes and sauces.
A store cupboard hero for both celebrity chefs and home cooks, the range is still handmade in the green heart of Wiltshire, abiding to traditional recipes, with an underpinning principle to buy the best quality ingredients sourced locally wherever possible to ensure the products taste as good as, if not better than, homemade.
