Pineapple Spiced Açai Chutney

What goes really well with pure açai? Lemon/lime and ginger! Açaí loves citric and spice. A little of each, plus salt & pepper completely transcends the taste of açai back to the roots of the Amazon.

Try our favourite açai chutney, with salad,  summer rolls, crackers and crudities.
