The chef and owner of Farm Bloomington in Bloomington ,Indiana, recently expanded his line of Kitchen D’Orr spice blends and Farm Bloomington sauces. His secret ingredient: mint chutney.
“I love to scour ethnic markets and international aisles in supermarkets for premade products that will jazz up the local ingredients (produce, eggs, dairy and meat) I buy. Jarred mint chutney is one of my favorite things to have on hand. If you have leftover chicken, just mix the chutney with some strained yogurt and toss the mixture with the chicken. I once served this type of chicken salad with red onion, celery and apple over greens at the restaurant, and people freaked out. They loved it so much. Mint chutney is even great when it’s added to something as ordinary as frozen peas—mint and peas are natural partners, and it adds a bit of an exotic twist.”
