Back in 1970, Tracklements founder William Tullberg made the first British wholegrain mustard.
Fast forward 51 years, his son carries on the company’s legacy of an innovative product range, with its special edition, Hot Banana Chutney.
Vegan and gluten-free, it’s been christened the life and soul of the pantry, owing to its ability to pep up simpler dishes and enhancing those with more complex flavours.
Tracklements Special Edition Hot Banana Chutney takes your taste buds on a culinary adventure to the exotic flavours and fiery heat of the Caribbean.
A perfect balance of sweet and spicy, it admirably blends the sweetness of one of the world’s most popular fruits with a blend of aromatic tropical spices including warming cardamom, spicy cayenne, hot ginger, vibrant turmeric and punchy chilli.
An ideal accompaniment for creamy curries and rice dishes, but equally good with leftover cold turkey or roast pork, jerk chicken or fish curry.
The Tracklements range boasts 40 award-winning chutneys, relishes and sauces.
A store cupboard hero for celebrity chefs and home cooks, the range is still handmade in the green heart of Wiltshire, abiding to traditional recipes, with an underpinning principle to buy the best quality ingredients sourced locally wherever possible to ensure the products taste as good as, if not better than, homemade.
Tracklements believe in business as a force for good, protecting the environment as they go.
They’re committed to make the most planet-friendly condiments you can buy minimising their environmental footprint through using recyclable packaging, their own water treatment facility, and more than 10,000 square feet of solar panels, which enables the company to generate 100 per cent renewable electricity that is also fed into the national grid at weekends through green energy company Good Energy.
And Tracklements doesn’t shy away from wonky veg either.
Tracklements Special Edition Hot Banana Chutney, RRP £3.35 for 220g.
