Rhubarb Ginger Chutney

By • April 29, 2010 • 8 Comments

Author Notes: I have to admit that my ultimate favorite rhubarb recipe is rhubarb pie, but I ended up making this rhubarb chutney as an accompaniment to pork tenderloin and I have used in several different ways since. It is sweet, but have a bit from the ginger and the peppers hit the back of the throat. I have served it along with biscuits as a surprise along more traditional jams and have gotten rave reviews. In this picture, I served it warm with a berkshire porkchop that was seasoned with cumin and coriander. Then put a mint pesto with some Isreali couscous. It was a super flavorful meal. I would love to hear how you serve itMyCommunalTable

I made this today! It tasted great! Such a good way to use up some of the rhubarb glut I get from my Mother in law!

Maybe you can drop some off at BP for the appetizers at Will and Kate's cocktail bash after the royal wedding ;)

So glad that you liked it. I just love rhubarb. It is nice to have a savory version. How about a strawberry rhubarb pie with the extra? It is my favorite dessert, ever!

I just whipped this together. It is delicious and I wouldn't change a thing about your fabulous recipe. The next time I make this I plan to X4 your recipe and can it in sterile jars.
