Cerise Chutney & Dirty Bastard Sweet Onion Jam

John Freyer—our sales rep in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota—made a chutney with our Cerise and a sweet onion jam with our Dirty Bastard, and was kind enough to share the recipes with us. Both were served at the Map Room during Chicago Beer Week; the chutney works well as a dessert when poured over mascarpone cheese.

Cerise Chutney

2 cups dried or frozen pitted cherries

1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/8 cup currants
