I've got something a little different today! I felt super inspired by summery BBQ'd shrimp and refreshing salsa, but when I woke up this morning it was so gloomy and its been raining all day so, now I feel like something rich and warm. I intended on making a cold peach salsa, instead, I'm taking similar ingredients and making a Spicy Peach Chutney. I'd never made peach chutney before but this one turned out really tasty so instead of testing it a million times, I'm just going to put it out there, raw and unrefined!
Trust me. It's good.
I did some research. I found that in a lot of recipes for chutney, tomatoes were blanched then cooled & peeled. same with the peaches/apricots. Then they were Jarred. Time consuming.. and, well, I don't have time for that!
I peeled my tomato/peaches right away, diced them up and let them cook down in their own juices. I mashed them in the pot, added the remaining ingredients, and set aside to cool. done and done in less than 15 mins and it tastes so great! The rest of the recipe is a piece of cake!
