Peach Chutney or Peach Relish

This peach chutney is a fresh, sweet tart peach sauce.

You can make this sauce any time of year, as it calls for canned peaches, not fresh.

If you want to use fresh peaches, simply peel the skins off (soak them in boiling water for about 30 seconds to make it easier) and cook them in a tiny bit of water until they soften, then proceed with the recipe as it is listed below.

This sauce is referred to as a chutney because it combines the sweetness of peaches, raisins and honey with the tart and spicy flavors of cider vinegar, mace and cloves. The cinnamon combines nicely and really rounds out the flavor.

The recipe says it pairs well with ham but I can think of lots of other uses.

It would be great, for example, served with spicy curries.
