We Will Release No Chutney Before Its Time

The D P Chutney Collective tirelessly toils to craft new products meeting the demanding standards of taste and ingredients quality you've grown to love. We're uber excited over the newest addition to our family - Old Ceylon Green Papaya Chutney - but you'll just have to cool your heels a bit longer before sampling.

This complex, heady melange of green papaya, lime zest, fresh ginger shards and colorful chilies, all stewed in a sweet coriander seed syrup, needs to mature "in jar" for a few weeks, and then, through the magic of kitchen alchemy, develops flavors both intensified and even more balanced. Hopefully we'll have a few to share at the upcoming Greenpoint Food Market on April 10 but we'll most definitely be uncorking in quantity during Carroll Gardens' May 31 Parked extravaganza at Brooklyn Yard. Check back soon on the progress of our "sleeping" beauties. Now let's let them get some rest.

Suggestions for use: all Caribbean and Thai dishes, fish of any type or preparation, mixed with cottage cheese for a retro salad. This chutney also pairs very well with chilled white wine: Sancerre, Pouilly Fume, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc.
