From Our Test Kitchens

We strive constantly to both create new products and improve those in need of overhauling in an earnest attempt to deliver only the highest quality chutneys and condiments. The Collective has been experimenting this month with Orange Slices in Spicy Syrup and Spiced and Pickled Red Grapes; both should be perfected in time for the 2010 holiday season. So start helping us think of all the creative ways you're going to be employing these exotic and whimsical additions to your November and December tables . . . from slow-roasted hams and turkeys to stunning cheese platters. Here at The Collective we're already loving the pickled grapes in chicken salad with plenty of mayo and fresh tarragon . . . when they're not splashing in our chicer-than-thou Martinis and Sidecars.

Now for those of you requesting a fierier chutney, your incendiary cries have been heard and implemented in our recent Spicy Tomatillo Conserves. We're still selling the original that has become one of our most popular items, and this latest version delivers all the same great flavors, only with considerable more heat courtesy of 3 varieties of fresh green chilies. The Collective will be debuting (sample and jars for sell) our hottest product this Saturday at the Greenpoint Food Market.

Divine Inspiration

The Collective has been lucky enough to prep a few jars in the kitchen of Greenpoint's Lutheran Church of the Messiah. Many thanks to Pastor Griffin Thomas for loaning us this beautiful, stained-glass sunlight dappled space!

The DP Chutney Collective will be sampling and selling our chutneys and spicy condiments (including the return of Spiced Pickled Cantaloupe) at May 16th's benefit event for the Northside Town Hall - Taste of Williamsburg/Greenpoint. Most of our favorite restaurants will be participating and the menus (click here for a sample of what's being offered) sound mouthwatering. $35 buys a ticket for a good cause and food and drink from dozens of North Brooklyn's finest eateries, but the outside gourmet provisions market will be free and open to all and that's where you'll find us! So stop by . . . rain or shine.

A Great Day at the Brooklyn Lyceum

The usual heartfelt Thanks to all who visited The D P Chutney Collective today at Park Slope's Brooklyn Lyceum Spring Food and Craft Fair. As always we loved meeting myriad chutney fans and chatting with all those lovers of the sweet and spicy! Our Curried Peach Chutney sold out in record time, soon followed by Middle Eastern Zucchini Relish, Plum Ketchup and our youngest child, Shropshire Apple Chutney.

We'll be appearing (One Night Only extravanganzas!) at NYC markets throughout May so check by here soon for further locations and hours.

p.s. And how many of you who braved the heat fell in love with Saturday's offering of Honey Heat Sauce from Cheshire Canning?
