When they start out with home preserves, most people tend to stick to making jams. As time goes by and their preserving confidence grows, keen home preserving fans start looking around for what to experiment with next. When summer fruit and vegetable growing starts to reach the glut stage, it is time to consider chutney in all its tasty and tangy varieties. In today’s blog post, we take a look at a few of our label sets that are just perfect for homemade chutneys.
Choosing your chutney labels
Whilst it might be quick and easy to simply stick a boring old printer label on your jars of chutney, they will look so much more appealing and professional if you use a nice label. We have a range of colourful labels for both jams and chutneys in a wide range of styles and designs. The Vegetable Garden label comes in two sizes, one for standard chutney jars and one for mini jars. The labels feature a colourful border of appetising vegetables around a white central panel in which you write your own details. These labels are part of a wider range of labels created by mother and daughter design team Rosemary and Caroline Wagstaff.
Another design in this range features some ingredients for making pickled onions – shallots, cinnamon, cloves and chillies. This label would look fantastic on your pickled onions or any onion-based chutney.
If you prefer a more subtle label, the Garden Gate label is rather charming. This features a wooden gate in the background with a white sign, on which you write the details of your chutney or pickles.
Packs start at just 18 labels, but you can order as many as you need. There are cost savings for ordering larger quantities.
Not just chutney labels
We stock a huge range of other labels for all manner of preserving projects, of course. Some are specific to jams and marmalades, while others would work perfectly adorning your chutney jars and giving that special finishing touch to your homemade pickles and preserves.
If you favour a more contemporary look, why not use our Union Jack labels? These are colourful and vibrant and create a striking effect. We also stock a range of labels featuring spots and dots, pinstripes, gingham checks, and many other designs. The olive green designs would work well with chutneys; however, it is sometimes fun to mix things up a little and use whatever labels take your fancy for your preserving project.
