Peach chutney

Method

  • Pour boiling water over the peaches. Then peel and stone them, before finely chopping up and setting aside.
  • Bring the vinegar to the boil in a large heavy-bottomed pot. Then turn the heat down and add the chopped peaches and garlic. Stir well and gently cook for about 10 mins until the peaches are reasonably tender.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Then cook for about 30 mins until thick and fragrant, stirring every now and again.
  • When ready, set aside to cool and then transfer to sterilised airtight containers and store until required.
  • nb.  If the peaches are a little lacking in flavour, cut back on the dates and raisins.
