This year, we are literally drowning in Rhubarb.

We baked all the Pie we could eat (like this one, or that ), I am having rhubarb porridge every morning and 70 % of our freezer space is taken up by pre-cut rhubarb.

I think for our sanity’s sake it is time to make some preserves! I would normally tend to make a sweet preserve like my fave Rhubarb and Ginger Jam. This year, however, I wanted to try a savory rhubarb recipe.

Something we can serve at a BBQ party, something we can put on a cheese platter! Something versatile, a real all-rounder!

This sweet and spicy Vegan Rhubarb Chutney is so easy to make and perfect for BBQs!

How to make Spicy Indian Rhubarb Chutney: 

We chop a bunch of rhubarb along with some red onions and throw them in a pot with raisins,  brown sugar, vinegar, some wine and of course spices!

I opted for a mix of mustard seeds, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and star anise! We let this mixture simmer a good 3 to 4 hours until the rhubarb chutney reaches a jam-like texture.

Just put it the stove on and have yourself a serious Netflix Marathon.

The flavour of the Rhubarb Chutney reminds me of a fruity, tangy BBQ Sauce! Thanks to its tartness this Rhubarb Chutney goes especially well with pork!

But we also use it as a spread for fancy sandwiches or as an accompaniment to cheese!

I could eat this Spicy Rhubarb Chutney by the spoonful!

Tips for making this easy chutney recipe: 

  • The rhubarb chutney recipe yields at four 250 ml jam jars. They make wonderful presents but you want to keep at least 2 for yourself! It’s that good!
  • I guess you could use rose instead of white wine if you have some leftover from your last book club meeting :-). 
  • If you do not want to cook with wine, use 150 ml orange juice and add 30 ml more vinegar. 

I am seriously considering cooking up some more chutney. It’s never too early to think about Christmas presents.
