Cherry Chutney

Recipe by  

"I live in the Columbia River Gorge. So many cherries are produced in a very short period, that during cherry harvest, farmers sell pounds of the stuff. I created a savory recipe because there's only so much cherry pie and ice cream one man can eat!"

I made it today and it was WAY too vinegary! I'm going to try again but with only a tad of vinegar.

I loved this! It's wonderful with crackers and goat or havarti cheese, as well as over pork. I have worked in catering and at fancy events we would prepare a cheese tray with many different cheeses and ramekins of honey (sprinkled with a few white sesame seeds) and chutney along with nice crackers. We provided little demitasse spoons and cheese knives so everyone could pick their favorite cracker and cheese and then drizzle some honey and chutney on top. The sweet/savory flavor is so sophisticated! This combination was always available at the most elegant events. Just be sure to not cook too long or you will end up with cherry jam!

This recipe had tons of great flavor from the fruit and the spices, but we felt it was a bit heavy on the vinegar. When we make it again, we will add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more brown sugar. We also added about an 1/8 teaspoon cardamom. Yum!

This is one of the best chutneys I have ever tasted! I would not change a thing. The 5 spice seasoning and cider vinegar are key, so don't skimp there.
