Peach Chutney: A sweet and versatile condiment (perfect for fish…) that’s ready in less than 30 minutes.Sauces/Condiments / July 30, 2021
According to an article in foodreference.com, the original chutney of India (Hindi: chatni) was usually a relish made from fresh fruits and spices. During the colonial era, the British took it home to their Island, and then on to to their other colonial possessions, including South Africa and the Caribbean Islands.
As far as a flavor profile, chutneys vary greatly. They can be fresh or cooked and are made from a wide variety of ingredients. They range in flavor from sweet or sour, spicy, or mild, or any combination of these. The consistencies range from thin to chunky and can be made with fruits or vegetables or both.
As I’ve always said, the quality of the ingredients used directly affects the quality of the final product. You would do well to use the Olive This! brand Peach White Balsamic Vinegar in this chutney as the peach quality is authentic, and the tang perfect. It’s seems to bind all the flavors into something new and perfect. Along with my addition of a tiny pinch of cloves, the fruit sings and melds perfectly with the rest of the ingredients. If you have a half and hour to chop, slice, and simmer. Make this chutney. No guilt involved!
