Chutney - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

A Christmas cheese board just isn’t complete without a really tasty Chutney and our slimming friendly recipe is guaranteed to impress – especially when paired with a really strong cheddar!

We’ve worked out a serving of this Chutney to be around a tablespoon which contains just 17 calories, so you’ll have plenty of calories left over to enjoy some delicious cheese.

If you wanted to cook this recipe in the slow cooker then you definitely could. Simply cook for around 4 hours on a high setting with the lid off until the Chutney is nice and thick and glossy.

This recipe would also make a perfect Christmas gift, as long as you properly preserve, sterilise and store it. It’s really important to follow directions when you’re doing this however as otherwise it can become unsafe to eat, so make sure that you do some research before getting started!

You can find loads of other ideas and inspiration for Christmas gifts in our Christmas recipes collection here.

This Chutney would work really well in place of the mincemeat in our Mince Pie Christmas Toastie to create a more savoury taste – ideal if you’re trying to use up leftover cheese from Christmas.

This Chutney is perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet and fits well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers. 

As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day.

How do you know when this Chutney is ready?

Your Chutney should take around 45 minutes to become thick and glossy.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

Can I cook this Chutney any other way?

We’ve cooked this Chutney in a pan on the hob, but you can also cook this in a slow cooker for around 4 hours with the lid off on the high setting.

We wouldn’t recommend cooking this in the pressure cooker as the liquid needs to reduce.

How long can I keep this Chutney in the fridge?

Your Chutney should be fine covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Sterilising your jars can help preserved foods to last longer however, so if you want to give this Chutney as a gift we’d recommend looking into that.

Can I freeze this Chutney?

No, we don’t recommend freezing this recipe.
