Nectarine Chutney

"I was looking for a way to use up some nectarines that were a little too ripe to eat & found this recipe by Elizabeth Crane on another website. The flavours of this are amazing & it makes the perfect accompaniment to roast lamb or lamb cutlets."

Questions & Replies

  1. can anyone tell me if the lemons in this should be peeled or if the rind should be left on?


  1. A bit too runny after 45 mins, so I used my stick blender directly in pot to thicken it.
  2. A great combination of flavours although I found it way too sweet so lessened the amount of sugar in a subsequent try.
  3. This chutney was so easy to make and tastes delicious! I doubled the recipe. I will definitely be making it again.
  4. Looking over the ingredients, I was pretty sure I couldn't go wrong with this, so I doubled the recipe so I include half of it as a nice gift for a friend to is nuts about nectarines! Your recipe (which I strictly followed) is A DEFINITE WINNER for my friend & I, Mandy! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Every Day Is a Holiday cooking game]


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
