Plum Chutney

It’s been a couple days since I’ve posted-mainly because I’ve been under the weather. Today I started the day with gusto! Since it’s super warm in the northeast (surprise!) I wanted to make something fairly quick so I could spend a lot of time outside. My house has also been neglected, and I always prefer to clean when my house smells good. So I decided to make a cinnamon spiced plum chutney.
It tastes more like a British pickle- if you know what I mean…

This is what you need;

1 medium red onion, sliced thin

2 cinnamon sticks

2 tbsp mustard seeds

2 cups white vinegar

1 1/2 cups light brown sugar

1 lb plums, pitted and sliced

1/2 tea salt

On low heat cook your mustard seeds dry until they start to ‘pop’ about 3 minutes. Add onions and let sweat for 3 minutes. Add everything else and simmer for one hour, covered. Stir every so often (about every ten minutes). Your house will smell fabulous AND you’ll have a wonderful chutney/pickle when you’re done.

Add to sterilized jars (this made about 3 -8 oz jars. Add to a water bath for 5 minutes to seal. Store in your cabinet!

I served as an appetizer on French bread layered with extra sharp cheddar cheese and a generous dollop of chutney. Yum!
