High Ranks for Farmer's Daughter Brand of Carrboro

Posted by on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 at 8:24 AM

Though local tomato season has all but come to a close, a few Triangle tomatoes continue to shine. Cooking Light magazine recently announced the recipients of its first Taste Test Awards, “The Tasties,” and among the six winners in the artisanal condiment category is Hyderabadi Tomato Chutney by April McGreger of Farmer’s Daughter brand in Carrboro. McGreger’s tomato spread was chosen in a blind taste test that examined hundreds of entries from across the nation.

All of McGreger’s condiments, of which there are more than 100 varieties, echo the produce available at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market where she is a vendor, and draw on local, seasonal offerings. Though many of her preserves and pickles were nominated for the Cooking Light competition, it’s appropriate that it was the tomato chutney that brought home the prize. Of her numerous creations, McGreger admits that the Hyderabadi Tomato Chutney is the one that remains a “constant” in her home refrigerator throughout the year. She created the chutney to be a “souped up, complex version of a tomato relish”—something that her grandmother and many southerners refer to as a chili sauce—and places it on top of okra fritters, beans, and hoppin’ john among other things.

Grab a copy of the October issue of Cooking Light, which hit newsstands late last week, to read more about the local chutney. Or, better yet, pick up an 8-ounce jar of it for $7 at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market through the end of October or until the summer stock runs out.
