Fiery Nectarine ChutneyMakes 3 cups
This sweet and spicy chutney goes great with just about anything! Jalapenos and ginger possess anti-inflammatory properties which help alleviate aches and pains associated with arthritis. The nectarines, red pepper, orange and lime juice provide disease-fighting antioxidants and Vitamin C. Serve as a dip with crudités and baked tortilla chips, or spoon a few tablespoons on top of grilled fish, poultry, turkey sausages and veggie burgers.
2 large, ripened nectarines (about 1 pound), finely chopped with skin
1 large red bell pepper, cut and chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
4 teaspoons minced, fresh jalapeño pepper (use more if you can take the heat!)
2 to 3 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons orange juice
In medium bowl, stir together nectarines, bell pepper, onion, jalapeño, lime juice, orange juice, sugar, salt, ginger, and allspice. Refrigerate until serving time.
