Simple Plum Chutney

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Mrs Goodall

This came from Eating Well magazine. We have Italian Plum trees and I'm always looking for new recipes to use up all our plums! Use 1 pound of any kind of plums you like. I love that there are only 4 ingredients! The tag line on the recipe says "...spread on crackers with cream cheese or as a dipping sauce for grilled chicken."

My plums may have been a little too tart, so I added more honey and some brown sugar. I also found it needed a little salt and I needed to thicken it with some corn starch. A lovely, simple recipe that lends itself to variations like adding other spices such as ginger. Thank you.
