Yellow Plum Chutney
So, last night we finally got up the motivation to can some chutney from the yellow plums in our front yard. The main motivation was that if we didn't do it now, the plums would rot and go to waste. It was tough, but we pulled a late night in the kitchen and got it done.
Here's the recipe:
2 pounds yellow plums
2 sweet onions
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
curry powder, cinnamon, and chili powder to taste
Blanche the plums (dip them in boiling water for about 30 seconds until skins pop open). When cool remove the skins and pits. Mix all ingredients into a big pot and simmer for at least an hour (make sure the onions are tender). When ready, can using the hot water bath technique for about 10 minutes. If you have never canned before, check out the abundance of resources online to make sure you are using proper techniques.
Now enjoy within the next 6 months- 1 year! We made a triple batch this year, so we are planning on sharing some of ours as holiday presents. Pin It Now!
