Cook Time

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 1 Hour

Serves: 3-6 servings or more


  • 4 pears peeled and chopped
  • 3 peaches peeled and chopped
  • 1 large roasted red pepper peeled and chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups of chopped onion (I used sweet onion)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 cups of packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp of chopped fresh ginger root
  • 1 Tbsp of honey
  • 1 Tbsp of soy sauce
  • 2 Tsp of dry mustard
  • 1 Tsp of chili powder
  • 1/2 Tsp of fine sea salt


  1. Start making your chutney by peeling and chopping the peaches and pears. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Cut and seed a large red pepper. Sprinkle with a bit of olive oil and place in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes to roast.
  3. While your pepper is roasting chop the onion and jalapeno pepper adding them to the bowl.
  4. Once the red pepper has cooled carefully remove the peel.
  5. Chop the red pepper and add it to the bowl.
  6. Chop the ginger root and add it to the bowl.
  7. Place the ingredients into a large pot and add apple cider vinegar, packed brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, dry mustard, chili powder, and sea salt stirring everything really well.
  8. Bring all ingredients to a boil.
  9. Turn the heat down to medium and gently boil until your chutney thickens.
  10. Remove from the heat and let your chutney cool.
  11. Spoon into jars or Ziploc containers.
  12. Refrigerate and enjoy for up to one week.
  13. You may want to can your chutney but I find that it gets eaten so fast that I simply refrigerate it.

Is this recipe something you might try to make?

      I love a good tasting chutney on a pork roast and this sounds like the winning recipe for such.
