This makes a small amount of fresh chutney, enough to accompany fish for dinner for 3-5 people.
  • about ½# or 2 medium fresh whole peaches, pitted and chopped into small cubes
  • ¼ to ½# fresh figs, stems removed and chopped into small cubes
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice (juice of ½ lime)
  • ¼ cup natural apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. black mustard seed
  • 1 Tbsp. or 0.2 oz. finely minced fresh ginger
  • pinch hot red pepper flakes
  • pinch salt if desired
  1. Prepare fruit, put it in a small bowl and pour lime juice over it, set aside.
  2. In a frying pan (I use my cast iron pan) combine the apple cider vinegar, water, honey, black mustard seed, ginger, and hot red pepper flakes. (The water is to give it more time as it boils down so the ginger will have time to cook).
  3. Cover the pan and let it simmer down to a syrup for 5 to 10 minutes. Watch it as if it gets too thick it will burn. Luckily it will still taste good if slightly caramelized.
  4. Once it's become a thick syrup, add the fresh fruit and stir for one to two minutes. I like this with the fruit not too mushy, so I don't cook it for long.
