I’m definitely a sweet and savory kind of girl. I LOVE appetizers that are a little mix of both. That’s why I am totally loving this Vidalia Onion and Peach Chutney!
Juicy peaches mix so well with the spicy sweetness of the Vidalia onions. It’s like a match made in heaven.
I like to make this with Vidalia onions because it gives this chutney such a unique taste. They have a sweet onion flavor that you can’t get from any other onion.
They are seasonal and only available from April to about August or September. So I cook up as many recipes as I can think of during this time to get the most out of the season.
Vidalia Onion and Peach Chutney
- 1 TBSP canola oil
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 Vidalia onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1tsp grated ginger
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2 Pounds firm peaches, peeled, cored, and medium diced
- ½ tsp chili flakes
- 1 pinch dry mustard
In a Dutch oven over medium heat, add canola oil. And when the pan is hot, add Vidalia onion and stir gently until onion start to become translucent.
Add garlic and ginger to pan. Stir one minute, but don’t let garlic start to brown.
Add brown sugar and apple cider vinegar. Mix all together. Once ingredients in the pan are mixed and sugar begins to dissolve, add peaches, chili flakes and dry mustard. Stir well.
Reduce heat to medium low. Cover Dutch oven with lid and continue to let simmer until peaches become soft but still hold their shape, about 35-45 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve. This Chutney can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, including on a charcuterie board or atop chicken and pork. My favorite way to eat this yummy chutney is right away with some warm crusty bread.
To store, ladle into canning jars. The Chutney can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
