Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Uncover; increase heat to medium. Cook and stir until liquid is evaporated. Cool completely.

Recipe Tip

  • We ranged the brown sugar to suit tastes. Try the bottom of the range if you like your chutney a little sweet and tangy.

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Young gouda cheese has a sweet curd that’s buttery, creamy with a nutty finish. When gouda is aged, the flavor becomes more complex with caramel notes and butterscotch sweetness; and it has a slight crystalline texture.
