Honey Sweetened Peach Chutney
Confession time: I made this chutney weeks ago but have been afraid to try it. I originally made the recipe because I thought my husband would love it, but I was afraid I would hate it. Dave has been asking me why I hadn't tried it and I had to admit my fear. He started laughing of course! How silly to be afraid of food, especially one I had made!
As it turns out, this chutney is lovely. And even more lovely with some soft goat cheese spread underneath it on a thick slab of crusty bread, this has become my new PB & J. Equal parts sweet and tangy, it makes your taste buds do summersaults but in a good way.
Jelly jars full would make an excellent Christmas gift, if you can keep it that long. That had been my original plan, but I'm not sure that I will have any left. I pretty much exactly followed Marisa's recipe exactly so you should go over there to get it. She also has great advice about how skin the peaches.
