After the festive feast has come and gone, what to do with the remnants of that succulent Christmas turkey? You can of course make a classic turkey sandwich, but if you want to really wow your loved ones this year then try your hand at making our Leftover Turkey Curry recipe.  

Us Scots love to experiment with different flavours and what better way to spice up your boxing day entertaining than with a fruity, festive turkey curry using Baxters Limited Edition Christmas Chutney.

The fruity, balanced blend of our Christmas Chutney gives your dish a well-rounded kick, meaning it pairs perfectly with turkey or chicken. Darren Sivewright, our Head Chef and Group Innovation Manager has prepared this tasty and easy-to-make masterpiece. Serve with a fresh nan or crunchy Poppadoms for an aromatic tantalising meal.

Limited Edition Christmas Chutney

Audrey Baxter Signature Range Christmas Chutney

Indulge in a spiced fruit chutney heightened by luxurious Madeira wine. This condiment is a perfect fusion of fruits and just the right blend of spices to bring a taste of the festive season to your feast.

While it’s perfect for our leftover turkey curry recipe, it also tastes great on a cheeseboard (on Christmas day or any other time – we won’t judge!), in a beef or veggie sandwich or as a small side dish.

Christmas chutney is available in a range of our hampers and individually on the Baxters online store.

Let the festivities commence – let’s get to work with your leftover turkey!
