Peach Chutney Recipe

Peach Chutney


This easy chutney is delicious with our Grilled Indian-Style Chicken Skewers—and we highly recommend it as an accoutrement on a cheese board.


  • 3 ripe peaches (about 1 pound)
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated, peeled ginger root
  • 1/3 jalapeño, chopped, plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • Kosher salt, to taste


  1. Fill a medium pot 2/3 full of water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, cut an x on the bottom of each peach. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Carefully lower peaches into boiling water for 30 seconds. Use a slotted spoon to remove peaches and transfer immediately to ice water. Discard water in pot and set pot aside.
  2. When peaches are cool enough to handle, peel off skin. Cut fruits in half. Twist and remove pits. Cut into 1-inch pieces and return to pot. Add brown sugar and 3/4 cup water. Simmer until peaches start to break apart.
  3. In a separate sauce pan, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Add onion, ginger, and jalapeño. Sauté until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add stewed peaches. Cook until mixture reaches a jam consistency, 8-10 minutes. Stir occasionally, further breaking up peaches, and adding more water, if needed.
  4. Stir in vinegar and salt, to taste.
