Fermented Currant, Pear & Horseradish Chutney
Traditionally a part of Indian cuisine, fermented chutneys are a spiced fruit based condiment served alongside other dishes for contrast, this fermented chutney has many inspirations: the pungent mostardas of Italy, chutney of India and a classic jam.

A fermented condiment, this relish also has digestion-enhancing probiotic kick.
