Plum Chutney

Happy Fall everyone! Our very generous neighbor gave us a box full of plums. They were super sweet but we couldn’t finish eating them, so we decided to make plum chutney. Plum chutney goes well with crackers or even turkey for Thanksgiving! I like to eat the chutney as it is because it reminds me of Nepali snacks called “Pau”. If you have excess plums and do not know what to do with it, try this recipe. You will love it!


5  lbs plum
1 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cups brown sugar
1 tablespoon crushed cloves
1 tablespoon cardamom powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
Salt to taste (or 1 teaspoon)
1 large onion chopped
1 tablespoon ginger crushed
1 tablespoon garlic chopped
Red chili to taste


1. Rinse and cut plum in half.

2. In a large dish, add plums, onion, garlic and ginger.

3. Add one cup of apple cider vinegar.

4. Add two cups of brown sugar.

5. Add crushed cloves.

6. Add cinnamon powder.

7. Add cardamom powder.

8. Add red chili powder and salt.

9. Mix everything and cook it on medium heat.

10. Cook with the lid on until everything softens.

11. Once all the ingredients are soft, cook without lid for 10 minutes with frequent stirring.

12. Let the sauce cool and place it in cute little jars. This chutney makes a great fall gift for your friends and neighbors.
