Tregunter Preserves


It doesn’t get much more local - or artisan - than this Runner Bean Chutney, hand-made by Sarah Gunter from beans grown in her own allotment in a residential suburb of Coventry, to a recipe handed down from her grandfather. We selected it from her extensive range of preserves - jams, jellies, marmalades, chutneys and curds - usually sold online or at local farmers’ markets such as Stratford-upon-Avon, which is where we first met her.

A vibrant yellow and green chutney with a tangy taste, it includes onions, cider vinegar, tomatoes, turmeric, coriander and mustard. Sarah is always experimenting, and open to new ideas, and was happy to go along with our suggestion to ‘pimp’ this recipe slightly with an added touch of mustard, to further complement the slightly stronger flavours of the meat and cheese products in our Warwickshire selection.
