Whether you’re topping your favourite crackers or pairing it with a savoury salad, this tangy and sweet chutney adds a delicious twist to any dish.
The tartness of the rhubarb is balanced with the warmth of ginger and a blend of spices, making it a flavourful addition to a vegan cheeseboard or charcuterie.

Can I adjust the ingredients in this recipe?
You can adjust the level of spice in the chutney to suit your taste. For a milder chutney, reduce the amount of ginger or chilli used, or increase it if you prefer a spicier chutney.
While apple cider vinegar gives this rhubarb chutney the best flavour, it can be substituted for white wine vinegar if necessary. You could also opt for a teaspoon of ground ginger instead of using fresh ginger, but this would alter the taste and texture of the final product.

It makes a wonderful addition to a charcuterie board, loaded with vegan cheese, crackers and plant-based deli meats.
