Peach Chutney Recipe
A delicious mix of cayenne pepper, chives and peaches
Stone fruit like peaches have been shown to ward off obesity-related diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. They may also reduce bad cholesterol (LDL).
Ingredients (Serves 4)
1½ teaspoons canola oil
1 small jalapeno chili, cored, seeded and minced
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 large shallot, minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh gingerroot
2 cups coarsely chopped peeled peaches (2 medium peaches)*
1½ tablespoons cider vinegar
1½ tablespoons brown sugar
1 dash chipotle chili powder or cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon minced chives
* Use fresh peaches in the summer, frozen or water-pack canned peaches at other times of the year. Use peach chutney as a topping for roast chicken breast, tuna or salmon steaks, or over hamburgers.
Heat canola oil in medium saucepan. Add chili, garlic, shallot and gingerroot and sauté until tender, about two minutes. Stir in peaches, vinegar, brown sugar, chipotle chili powder, salt and pepper. Simmer mixture for 10 minutes or until fruit is tender. Sprinkle on chives just before serving.
