Cherry Chutney is a fantastic summer condiment to make with fresh, sweet cherries. If you are unfamiliar with chutney, let me give you a quick description. It’s like a relish, it has sweet and sour ingredients, usually coming from sugar or fruits and vinegar. It is a blend of sweet and savory. Chutney is a great condiment to use with grilled meats or vegetables and this cherry chutney went splendidly with a grilled flank steak.
During warm summer months, when stone fruit is at its peak, I make big batches of this chutney to put up for winter months when I need a bit of summer.
I’m on a serious cherry kick lately. I can’t get enough of them. We have gone through almost 10 pounds in the last month because they always seem to find their way into my cart. You know, just in case I need more. I’ve been putting them in everything from cakes to oatmeal and this week, I decided to go a savory route.
