This peach chutney is sweet, spicy and a little tangy. A delicious recipe that works well spooned over things like chicken or as a dip to accompany things like chips and toast.
Peaches are my favorite fruit so I always look forward to summer when they are in season. They are a versatile fruit that can be used for anything from yummy desserts like this peach cream pie to even salsa.
Peaches are also the perfect fruit for this chutney. They offer the perfect balance of sweet to the tangy vinegar and spicy red pepper flakes.

What is chutney?
Chutney is a sauce or condiment that originated in India. Typically made by cooking fruit, sugar and vinegar. Many chutneys also contain onion and spices.
Peaches – I would recommend using fresh peaches for the best results. You will want to remove the peel before dicing. If you can’t find fresh, you can substitute with thawed, frozen peaches.
Golden raisins – These add another layer of flavor and texture. You can substitute with red raisins if you prefer.
Onion and garlic – Diced small.
Fresh ginger root – Make sure to peel and then mince the ginger up small.
Brown sugar – Use light brown sugar like Dixie Crystals Light Brown Sugar.
Apple cider vinegar – This gives the chutney a great tangy taste.
Crushed red pepper – Adds a little hint of heat. Feel free to leave this out if you don’t like spice.
Vegetable oil – Used to cook and soften the onion, garlic and ginger.
Lemon juice – Helps to balance the flavor and keep peaches fresh.
