Beet Chutney

Serve with roasted meats or chicken or Indian curries.

8 to 10 ounces Chioggia beets, roasted and peeled
extra virgin olive oil
1 T freshly grated ginger
1 or 2 serrano peppers, minced
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
a pinch of ground cayenne
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 T red wine vinegar
white granulated sugar, to taste
2 T chopped fresh cilantro

Preparing the chutney:
Cut into 1/8 inch dice and put into a medium bowl. Add the ginger, serranos and orange zest, toss and season with salt and pepper.

Stir in the vinegar, taste, correct for salt and taste again. If it seems a bit flat or flavorless, add a teaspoon of sugar, stir and taste again. Repeat 2 or 3 times until the flavors blossom. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

Makes 1 cup
