The Boy’s Cherry Chutney…

July 22, 2010

Last week I posted some brownies spurred on by a gift of cherries from our friends, the Boy also got cooking and make an amazing chutney.

I had to share as although it takes a while and a bit of patience to stone so many cherries, it was so so good!

You need:
1 pound cherries, pitted
1 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1 large onion, chopped
1 Granny Smith apple – peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
2 tablespoons Chinese five-spice powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1. Place the cherries, cider vinegar, rice vinegar, onion, apple, white sugar, brown sugar, ginger, five-spice powder, salt, and nutmeg into a large pot. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.

2. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

3. Remove the lid, and continue simmering until the desired consistency has been reached.
Chill before serving.

We tucked in to it with cheese a few nights ago!
