Chutneys, Relishes & Pickles:
Charlie's Chutney: £4.95
One of our best sellers, our Charlie's Chutney has a classic rich and tangy flavour. Everyone wonders who ‘Charlie’ is…?!
Well he is our gorgeous son, and at the grand age of 8 years old is following his dad’s love of cooking and creating – together they made this delicious chutney and we’ve been selling pots of it ever since. We describe it as a great all-rounder, there are so many ingredients and flavours you’ll pick up different nuances according to your palate. It’s fantastic with any cheese and finishes off a rustic ham sandwich perfectly!
Red Onion Marmalade: £4.50
Our slowly caramalised Red Onion Marmalade is deliciously sweet, scrumptious and very moreish!!
One of our bestsellers, this is such a versatile option, delicious with cheese, cold meats and in sandwiches. Try our recipe suggestion of Goats Cheese & Red Onion Marmalade Pastry Puff Slice – or if one of your favourites is good old ‘Sausages and Mash’, when making your onion gravy put a generous spoonful of this in it and you will love the taste it provides!
Tomato Chilli Relish: £4.95
Award-winning, amazing and versatile!
What the judges said: “Lovely rich colour. Powerful aroma with the chilli coming through well. Juicy sweetness from the tomato and a good, well-married smoked paprika. Quality ingredients, well prepared”
This can be used in so many different ways: delicious with cheese, meats and in sandwiches. It’s not spicy – we make it so it’s got a bit of a ‘tang’ but flavour is the key to this relish. It’s great stirred in to pasta if you want a quick meal or spread on toast and sprinkle some cheese over it then grill for a couple of minutes, another easy snack.. However one of our favourite suggestions is to include it in your shepherds or cottage pie meat mix and let it simmer and spread its wonderful aromatic flavour throughout the dish..
Hot (Hot! Hot!) Chilli & Garlic Relish: £4.95
This was a recent addition to our range and has been a best-seller. It does have a big chilli kick – and people LOVE it!
It's the perfect partner to a local cheeseboard and large glass of red wine. Equally it is absolutely delicious with a curry (replace your lime pickle with this), red meats and sausages, especially if they’ve just come off the BBQ.. The best suggestion we’ve heard is smothered on a hearty burger!
Rosie’s Relish: £4.95
The perfect partner to Charlie's Chutney above, Rosie was named after our fab 6-yr old daughter! Bursting with local pumpkins, tomatoes and touches of ginger, coriander seed, chilli and cumin this relish has an amazing tangy flavour - perfect on a rustic ham chunky sandwich or with any cheese.
Pickled Cucumbers: £3.75
Launched for Christmas 2018, these have quickly become an Appetite Kitchen ‘firm favourite’ with our customers! Tangy and simply delicious, they are perfect in a sandwich, burger or on the side of any dish you like - or how about just getting a fork and eating straight from the jar….. mmmmmmm!!

It is truly tangy and the combination of garlic and lemon is wonderful.

We use it a lot with chicken – pour a little over your chicken before putting it in the oven and the flavours infuse beautifully – you’ll never eat chicken without it again!
Asian Ginger Dressing: £4.95
Award-winning and delicious!
What the judges said: “An interesting combination liked by the judges. There was a pleasing heat and good complexity of flavours alongside the oils”
Ever since we launched this, it has consistently been a customer favourite. As soon as you taste it, you’ll understand why – a delicious flavour that conjures up all that its Asian name implies… Due to the oil being local Hampshire rapeseed oil, this product can be used in cooking – stir fries with vegetables, meat and fish; to marinade vegetables, meat and fish or simply drizzled over your salad or dish.
The flavours are authentic and utterly delicious…

We love it drizzled over a mozzarella based salad, or any fresh leaves – it’s also great with white meats.
