farmer's daughter

I came home from an artisanal food shoot with some farmer's daughter brand tomato chutney and *wow* it is really, really delicious. I use it on everything, from salads to doctoring trader jo's indian dishes. Or as this photo can attest, just to sop up some naan. You know when something is so good you want to share it with everyone you know ("oh hi mr. fedex, thanks for the package, would you like to try some of this chutney")?

From the website:
Farmer's Daughter is a farm-driven artisan food business celebrating the flavors of the South and the soils of the North Carolina Piedmont while gaining inspiration from authentic food cultures worldwide. It was founded in 2007 by April McGreger, who learned the art of preserving at the elbows of her mother and grandmother amidst a rural farming community in Mississippi. Farmer's Daughter seeks to promote the value of sustainable, small-scale agriculture as well as traditional, handmade methods of preserving.
