Barkestone Beetroot Belter Chutney
Barkestone is set amid gentle hills and crop-growing fields, with woods nearby. The Grantham canal runs through the village, which is accessed by narrow roads. On visiting Barkestone you are on the borders of three counties - Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire - but the Vale has a character all its own, as if it were a county in its own right. From a high spot, the fields and hedgerows spread out as breathtakingly as any landscape artist could wish, Beet fields included. Which why our Beetroot Belter chutney has been linked to Barkestone.
