Peach and Red Onion Chutney

Peach and Red Onion Chutney

Most chutney is made of sugar and vinegar reduced fruit, veggies and spices. I used peaches but you could use nectarines, plums, mangoes or any stone fruit. You could even use tomatoes, apples or pears.


  • 3 peaches, cut into ¼ inch dices
  • 1 Spanish red onion, cut into ¼ inch dices
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp crushed chili flakes
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. In a medium pan with a splash of oil, sweat (soften) the onions. Be careful not to brown them.
  2. After 2 or 3 minutes add vinegar, chili flakes, sugar and salt.
  3. Add peaches to the mixture and reduce it on a low/medium heat. While stirring, squash the peaches with the back of a wooden spoon. This reduction will take 10-20 minutes.
  4. Once your peach chutney has reduced/thickened remove it from the heat and let it cool.
