Spiced Plum Chutney

Spiced Plum Chutney

Hey everyone another day of fall, another recipe. Today we have a spiced plum chutney. This is the season for all those spices you have in your house, your cinnamon's, cardamoms, nutmegs. I had some plums in my fridge that hadn't been used up and to be honest I was over eating them so I decided to just knock up a chutney. So I did a check up on the internet to get an idea of what people used. Some people had the longest list of spices ever and I didn't want to lose the taste of the plums so I was very selective in what I used. In the end it was a nice little blend of flavors .

 

  • 3 Star Anise
  • 1 Clove
  • 1 Stick Cinnamon
  • 1/3 Cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ginge
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground Mustard Seeds
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 3 T Water
  • 1 Cardamom
  • 1/4 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • 1/4 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1/4 Tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 4 Red/ Black Plums

Now the plums can be done two ways, you can either give the plums a cross mark at the bottom of the fruit then put them in boiling water for up to a minute, shock it in ice water, then peel it and cut it in half then separate them. It's a very common method for tomatoes. If they are hard enough you can just grab a peeler and peel them then just cut them in half up to the seed, rotate the sides in opposite directions and separate them.

The fact of the matter is, its up to you. Once you've got your peeled and separated plums then cut them up and put them in the pot. Measure your spices and liquids then put them in your pot. Keep your pot on a medium heat and let the soon be chutney simmer. Be sure to constantly stir it. You don't want it to burn

Once its done, remove your Cinnamon Stick, Anise seed, and Cardamom seeds
