I really liked this recipe. I thought I would share my notes on how I made it this year using Pomona's Pectin to speed the cooking process and so I can make it again next year. Thanks Shana for posting such a great recipe. Spicy Peach Chutney 4 pounds sliced peeled peaches 1 cup raisins (I used golden) 2 cloves garlic, minced (I used a little less and added about ½ Tablespoon of salt while mincing) 1/2 cup chopped onion 5 ounces chopped preserved ginger ( I am going to try grated peeled fresh next time) 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder (cayenne) 1 tablespoon mustard seed 1 teaspoon curry powder 4 cups packed brown sugar (possibly dark brown due to use of 1/3 white sugar) 4 cups apple cider vinegar 1/4 cup pickling spice (Tampico smells better than Mojave brand to me) MODIFICATIONS TO ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS TO USE POMONAS PECTIN: (The advantage to this is reduced cooking time and better control over jelling) Boil 2/3 of brown sugar, vinegar, spice packet, and can add onions and garlic now or after 10—15 minutes depending on texture desired. Boil until reduced by 1/3 to ½ over high heat should reduce into a syrup. About 1 minute prior to adding peaches add rest of spices. I used cayenne pepper for heat instead of chili powder and mix. Add peaches and calcium water as per recipe for peach jam for volume you are making using hot method on Pomona’s pectin box recipe insert.Take 1/3 sugar(white) and mix pectin very well with hand into sugar
