We were out and about today. On the way home I asked Nick to stop so we could pilfer more plums. He found another tree, laden with yellow fruit.
Once home I weighed our haul and we had just over a kilo - mainly of yellow plums but with some red. I looked online for a recipe which more or less matched pantry ingredients and settled upon "Richly Spiced Plum Chutney".
Although I read through the recipe (and tweaked some of the ingredients), I didn't look at the comments. Had I done that, I would have reduced the amount of vinegar substantially. As a result the chutney required a far longer simmering time to reduce sufficiently before bottling. Oh, well!
The yield was two large 500ml jars and one smaller 250ml jar. The lids are popping as I write - I do love that sound! I sampled a tiny leftover after bottling and think I've done good work. I guess now we wait two weeks (as per the recipe) for a proper taste-test!
