Default Question about Chutneys

I was thinking about trying to do my own Chutney. However, can you for example use honey instead of sugar in it?

And any tips of things to do/not do with them?

yup, substituting honey for refined sugar is a fairly common choice.

my experiences with indian cuisine suggest that chutneys are often paired with foods in a way that surprise me, so i have no suggestions on usage.

Indian is a cooking style that is very far from my own. I don't really have a good handle on it. (although I enjoy it tremendously).

You use a chutney the same way you use a kimchee.

For flavor.

Well, I just did a batch of chutney. Will be interesting to see how it turned out, and then find a suitable dish to serve it with.

I used the following:

6 Granny Smith-apples
2 Mangos
2 Yellow onions
2 Red chilis
2 Cinnamon sticks
1 tablesspoon of ginger
a pinch of salt.
3 dl of apple-cider vinegar
1 dl of balsamic vinegar
1 can of honey (700 grams)

Peel apples, and de-seed them. Cut into small pieces.
Chop onions into small pieces.
De-seed the chili. Chop into very fine pieces.
Chop manoges into small pieces.
Peel the ginger, and cut into tiny pieces/shred it.

Put vinegar and spices into pot. Boil it.
Add the rest of the ingredients except the honey. Boil for 10 minutes.
Add honey. Let simmer for 40 minutes more, make sure to stir properly, so it doesn't burn.

Put into well cleaned glass jars, and then let cool.

/Magnus
