This week has mostly been about Plums! Yesterday I made Plum Chutney.
And there it is- I have run out of my little jars with spotty lids and have had to recycle some shop bought jars.
Here’s the recipe- I sort of mixed up several I found on the internet, and then changed a few ingredients for those I had in the cupboard. It should now be left for a month or so to mature, but I did taste a bit left on the spoon, in the pan.. and it was so nice!
1 1/2 lbs plums halved and stones discarded
2 onions chopped1/4 lb raisins
1/2 lb soft brown sugar
1/4tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp mustard
5 1/2 fl oz cider vinegar
51/2 fl oz red wine vinegar
pinch of cinnamon
Put everything into the pan, bring to boil and then reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, cook for an hour- an hour and a half, until liquid had mostly gone and you have a nice looking chutney! Pot into hot sterilized jars, and keep in a cool dark place.
Linking in with Heather at Townsend House for some lovely food
Do check the site out. Have you any good plumy ideas?
