Courgette & Cumin Chutney Recipe

Hen Corner’s courgette and cumin chutney recipe

Urban smallholding Hen Corner’s recipe for delicious courgette and cumin chutney - perfect as a foodie gift or for impressing your guests with!

“This is a classic chutney that is best kept to mature for a few months allowing the flavours to mellow as they are absorbed throughout all the ingredients,” explains Hen Corner’s Sara Ward.

“This makes it a perfect treat to give away as a gift at Christmas or to serve with cold meats when entertaining!”

Chutney Hen Corner




  • 2.5kg Courgette
  • 1kg Onions
  • 100g Cumin
  • 6 x Garlic Cloves
  • 4 x Chillies
  • 1 kg Soft Brown Sugar
  • 1 ltr Cider Vinegar


  1. Chop the vegetables into small, evenly sized pieces.
  2. Finely chop the garlic and chillies.
  3. Place all ingredients in a large preserving pan and start off over a low heat.
  4. Slowly bring to a simmer, giving it an occasional stir to ensure even distribution of sugar and spices.
  5. Allow to simmer for 3-4 hours until the chutney has reduced in volume and the consistency is thick. Keep an eye on it throughout so that it doesn’t burn/catch on the bottom
  6. Pot it up in warm sterilized jars.
