We’ve been blessed with glorious sunshine for the last four days. What! Four consecutive days of uninterrupted brightness…and not a drop in sight… and that too with Wimbledon on in full swing (it has to rain during Wimbledon; remember those umbrellas )!!
But, honestly, it’s been nice to get that sunshine, and with a gentle breeze, the weather does feel nice.
Just a very quick recipe to share today…and I mean really quick…just takes a couple of minutes. I made this hot and sweet, peach and raisin chutney yesterday.
The ingredients listed below yielded one cup of chutney.
1C of chopped peaches(I used canned slices, discarding the juice)
1 tblsp raisins
1/2 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
2 and 1/2 tblsp dark brown sugar
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp (more or less) of crushed red chillies
1 tsp lemon juice
- Heat the oil in a pan.
- Add the peaches and raisins and stir for 4-5 seconds.
- Add the ginger and cardamom powders and the chillies, and mix in.
- Sprinkle the sugar, and continue stirring till the sugar melts and the mixture begins to thicken, coating the peaches and raisins.
- Add the lemon juice, stir, and remove from heat.
That’s it! Serve hot or cold, as a condiment, or top on toast. Now, how’s that, for a short and sweet (and hot) post (recipe)
