This chutney was inspired by a batch of wonderfully fragrant and juicy peaches from the farmer’s market. I wanted a sweet, yet savory side dish for a package of our pork CSA sausages.
The result was a sweet yet spicier chutney that paired perfectly with the delightfully rich sausage. The secret to this amazing burst of flavor was fresh grated ginger. It gives a big pop up front and then subsides to reveal the sweetness of the peaches and the tanginess of the cider vinegar. This chutney would work equally well for any cut of pork, as well as lamb or poultry.
