Speaking in an ITV documentary for the Queen’s 90th birthday, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed her worries about buying the Queen a Christmas present for her first year at Sandringham. Well, understandably. What do you buy a woman who has everything?
She decided to stick to something homemade, and so whipped up a batch of marrow chutney from her own grandmother’s recipe.
We’ve come up with five marrow chutney recipes which we believe would rival Kate’s attempts.
1. Classic marrow chutney
Off to a steady start, here’s a recipe by James Martin from the BBC’s Good Food website. The recipe is rustic and wholesome, which we can only imagine was similar to how Kate’s turned out.
2. Marrow and ginger chutney
This one’s described as an “easy recipe for marrow and ginger chutney which will cheer up your cheese, cold meats and sandwiches”.
3. Marrow and tomato chutney
This recipe will be the perfect addition to all those curries you always make. You domestic God/Goddess, you.
4. Spicy marrow chutney
This alternative recipe is neither the texture of smooth jelly-like jam nor chunky like Branston. According to author Louisa, with all the different spices it’s got a very full taste rather than a one-note blast of chilli heat.
5. Apple and marrow chutney
And finally, we’ve only gone and thrown a bit of apple in there! Haven’t we! Here’s the recipe. Enjoy!
