Perfect condiment for spring and summer BBQ!This rhubarb chutney is one of my creative attempts that ended up being my new favorite condiment! I mean, I’ve never used rhubarb in savory dishes and I can’t say that I’ve ever made anything more creative than a rhubarb pie. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of rhubarb pies, but as you know, I don’t have an oven at the moment, so I had to use my rhubarb in some other way. I came up with this delicious rhubarb chutney and I didn’t regret it.

Let’s be honest here, rhubarb is not the most popular spring fruit (or vegetable?) in the world. We see asparagus and strawberry recipes all over the internet in spring, but rhubarb is always in the shadow. It shouldn’t be though!

Rhubarb has huge health benefits: it improves your digestion, helps you to lose weight, optimizes your metabolism and keeps your skin healthy. It is packed with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that make it good for your body. Rhubarb contains vitamin K, vitamin C, B complex vitamins, as well as dietary fiber, protein, manganese, magnesium, calcium and potassium. It is rich in lutein, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin. What not to love about rhubarb? Maybe only its leaves, because they aren’t edible. But the stalks are so good for you! The season is not long, so make sure you use rhubarb in your cooking now, while it’s still available. One more reason to make this chutney is that it also contains strawberries, ginger and apple cider vinegar, among other things, making it even more healthy and delicious!

This rhubarb chutney is a perfect condiment for the upcoming grilling season. It’s tangy and sweet with a spicy touch. You can use it as a condiment for anything grilled: any type of meat, poultry, fish or vegetables, as well as a spread for crusty bread, as a dip for crackers and chips or/and as an addition to your cheese plate. It’s perfect with goat cheese and many other cheeses!

How to Make Rhubarb Chutney with Strawberries and Ginger

Did I mention that it’s really easy to make it? It takes from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how smooth you want it to be. I like it more silky, but if you opt for a chunky chutney, be my guest! You can store this chutney in an airtight container for as long as 7-10 days or can it for later use. For canning, boil your jar (jars) and lids in water for at least 15 minutes, fill them with chutney and seal. Check the recipe below and make this delicious rhubarb chutney this weekend!

Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add finely chopped red onion to the skillet. Sautée for 1 minute, stirring occasionally, then add minced garlic and ginger and finely chopped red pepper. Sautée for 1 more minute, stirring occasionally, then add ground cardamom, cloves and a pinch of salt. Sautée for 1 more minute, stirring frequently. Add the lime juice and apple cider vinegar and bring to a boil. Add brown sugar and stir well until it dissolves.
  2. Add the chopped rhubarb and reduce the heat. Cook uncovered until the rhubarb breaks down for a silky texture, or for not more than 4 minutes for a chunky consistency. Add the strawberries and cook until they just begin to soften, for about 2 more minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Let cool and fill into clean/sterilized jars. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

To thicken your chutney, cook it with a lid off, until the liquid evaporates. If it's too thick, just add a bit more lime juice.
Refrigerate for 7-10 days. To store it longer, fill the chutney into sterilized jars (see the notes above for directions).

    Thank you for another Rhubarb recipe to add to my collection. I have 5 Rhubarb plants growing all around my garden. I was given some strawberries from a friend. Googled rhubarb and strawberries recipes and this popped up. Thought it sounded strange to start with but was happy to give it a go! I love making relish and chutneys, also I love all things with Indian flavours. A new favourity in my chutney recipe book!!

      Hi Michelle! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment! I’m glad that you decided to give my recipe a try. Please let me know how it was!
      I’m a bit envious that rhubarb and strawberries are already in season in your area 🙂 I have to wait for them until May. I will surely post more recipes then.
      One more idea for you – really easy once you make this chutney. Just spread some goat cheese and chutney over a piece of baguette or ciabatta bread, op with strawberries and rosemary and you have an impressive appetizer in less than 10 minutes! Here is a recipe: http://happykitchen.rocks/goat-cheese-crostini-rhubarb-chutney/
      Hope you enjoy it!
