Got peaches? Our peach crop wasn’t anything near great this year, but our two little peach trees did produce enough peaches that I could make a batch of spicy peach chutney. I am so glad I decided on the chutney for the use of our few peaches. This stuff is incredible and has a thousand uses!
I added garlic, chili powder, mustard seed, brown sugar, vinegar and raisins. All this is cooked over medium heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until the mixture thickens. The chutney is ladled into hot sterilized jars, sealed, and processed according to safe canning measures. Click HERE for canning procedures from PickYourOwn.org.
