Default Caramelised carrot chutney

M&S do a Wensleydale and caramelised carrot chutney butty - it's the biz. But obviously don't want to be paying 1.60 for a sarnie if I can buy (or make) some myself. I've googled but came up with nothing. Any ideas?

Thanks Trow, I'm not at all sure about removing skin and bones from carrots though.

Default M&S Wensleydale and carrot chutney sandwiches

Hi there

Does anyone have a recipe for carrot chutney like the one in the M&S sandwiches? I think the ingredients are just carrots, sugar and white wine vinegar - I meant to keep the box but it got thrown away. Those sandwiches are sooooooo delicious and I'd love to be able to make that chutney - I've never found a bought one that I actually like.

Hope someone can help!

Julia

My Mum made this one... it's nice. Don't buy bought sarnies so can't comment on Marks one but you could I suppose leave the sultanas out...



1 lb--500gm carrots washed and chopped, for a fine chutney grate the carrot.
3 oz--88gm brown sugar
3 oz--88gm sultanas
1 pint--510 ml vinegar, malt or white
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon ground ginger
12 peppercorns
1 bay leaf
Method
Put all the ingredients in a pan. Bring to the boil. Simmer till all the ingredients are tender, stir occasionally. Do not overheat so that the chutney sticks to the pan. Do not put a lid on the pan when cooking the chutney. The chutney should be tender and the liquid syrupy.
Warm chutney jars, use a jug to put the chutney in the jars. Wipe clean, put on wax lids, top off with the cellophane lid and rubberband. Let the chutney cool, label and store.
Enjoy

Hi, Julia! We've had another thread asking for this recipe. Sadly, no report of whether the recipe is any good.

I'll merge the threads. When you make the chutney, let us know - I love those sarnies too

Default Carrot and Almond Chutney

Not quite the same as caramalised carrot chutney, but very nice all the same. Has a lot of ginger and a nice crunch to it, so great in a sandwich.

Ingredients
1.25kg carrots
85g grated ginger
250ml white wine vinegar
150ml water
juice and grated rind of 2 lemons
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp salt
2 tbsp ground coriander seeds
1 tsp ground ginger
2 large chillies
3 tbsp flaked almonds

Method
Grate the carrots and mix with all the other ingredients, except the chillies and almonds, leave to stand overnight. Bring to the boil and simmer for twenty minutes, then boil hard for ten to fifteen minutes or until thickened. Finely chop the chillies and add them and the almonds to the mixture. Pot in steralised jars.

I love that mis-translation. Makes me think it should be a caramelized parrot chutney! I don't think that would be so good with wenslydale..

Hope you've made sure you've got all the bones out first though.

Hi,

Sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but I wanted to recreate the M&S carrot chutney and was just wondering if anyone had tried any of these recipes? Which one is best?

Thanks!

I haven't - I should have done really, but none of them sounded quite right. I'll try and have a go soon, though.

I`ve never tried the sandwiches, but maybe they use this chutney in them. I know they get a lot of their products from baxters, as I saw some of them being packaged when they did factory tours before the elf and safety folk stopped them.

Default Caramelised Carrot Chutney

Hi Guys,

I love these sandwiches too so i've had a go at making my own chutney. I used a red onion marmalade recipe and adjusted it. Here it is! This will make one 8oz jar of chutney!

3 medium sized carrots (grated)
2tbsp olive oil
1 pinch salt
6 dessert spoons caster sugar
100mls white wine vinegar
50 mls water

1. Heat the olive oil in a heavy bottomed pan over a low heat.

2. Add grated carrot to the pan and cook slowly until soft. Add pinch salt

3. Add sugar mix until disolved

4. Pour in vinegar and water

5. Bring mixture to the boil and cook quickly until all liquid has been absorbed

6. Pour into a sterilised jar and leave to cool (to sterilise an 8oz jar, pre heat oven to 150 degrees celcius, wash jar is soapy water and rinse, place jar and lid in heated oven for 15mins)

Once opened will keep in the fridge for up to one week.

Hope you like it!
