How to Freeze Chutney

Chutney, which derives from traditional East Indian cuisine, is a relish condiment that contains different herbs, flavourings, fruits and vegetables. You can preserve the chutney by canning it or storing it in the freezer. Freezing the chutney does not require as much preparation as canning, and it will last for up to 12 months in the freezer.

Pour the chutney into freezer containers with a ladle.

Leave ½ inch of headspace in the containers because the chutney will expand when it freezes.

Allow the chutney to cool completely.

Secure the lid on the freezer container. Write the date on the container and store the chutney in the freezer.
