Peach Chutney

Peach Chutney

Major Grey makes great chutney.  But with about 15 minutes effort, you can make this fresh home-made chutney in the microwave.  The recipe works fine for many seasonal fruits—apricots, pineapples, nectarines, mangoes.  Be sure to use a microwave-safe dish and check frequently as chutney starts to thicken.  Recipe makes between 1 and 2 cups, depending on size of fruit.  A bowl of seasoned curried rice, a few shrimp = dinner.

  • 2 fresh, ripe peaches
  • 1 small yellow sweet pepper
  • A little grated onion (optional)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tblsps apple cider vinegar
  • Ginger to taste—grated fresh, ground or some of both
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • Black pepper
  • Optional—1/2 orange, peel and all, adds tartness—use food processor for prep

Chop/mash peaches (orange, if using) and pepper.  Add all ingredients to microwave-safe bowl and stir thoroughly.  Microwave uncovered in 5-minute increments and stir each time you check.  Chutney is done when consistency feels like heavy syrup.  Cool and store in fridge in covered jar.
