  1. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onion and cook for a few mins until starting to soften. Add the remaining ingredients, increase the heat and stir to dissolve the sugar. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until most of the liquid has evaporated and the peaches have softened – this will take about 45 mins. Meanwhile, sterilise your jars (see tip, below).
  2. Transfer the chutney to the jars, seal and leave to cool before eating. The chutney can be stored in a cool dry place for up to 1 year. Once opened, keep in the fridge and eat within 4 weeks.

Just made this, I didn't have enough peaches so substituted half with banana, I also reduced the (de seeded) chillis to only 2 rather than the 6 as recommended in the recipe, it is absolutely delicious the perfect balance of heat and the banana adds a lovely flavour, it took a lot longer to cook than the recipe states. This is definitely one to keep with the added tweeks. It made about a pound and half of chutney.

This is delicious. Although my liquid took longer to evaporate. It's almost like a mango chutney, perfect with a curry or just with cheese and crackers! Will certainly be making some more while I can!

I made this and it has been a huge success and enjoyed and complimented by the whole family. I even forgot about it and almost burnt it and it still worked.

My husband loves this. Only made one lot but he has already eaten 2 jars of it in 6 weeks. I am hoping to make some more while peaches are still in season. Definitely acquires more bite as it matures... at least it would if he left it long enough!
