Pineapple Ginger Chutney


Except for the peeling part I totally enjoy pineapples.The last one we bought was so fully ripened and had to be used in a day.Why not make a tongue tickling chutney for a change?.The spice from Ginger and chili peppers balances the sweetness from the fruit,and lime juice adds a nice tang to sweet and spicy concoction.The experiment turned out to be a toothsome condiment,the Vitamin loaded chutney is relishing with chips and crackers,spread on sandwiches or mixed with rice.


Recipe
Ingredients
1/2 a fresh pineapple,peeled and cubed
1 inch piece fresh ginger root,minced
1 hot or medium hot chili peppers,seeded and chopped(I used habanero)
1 cinnamon stick
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 tablespoon sugar(optional,I didn't use any)
Pinch of salt


Method

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan ,avoid reactive metallic containers like aluminum or cast iron,preferably use stainless steel.Bring the contents to a slow boil,simmer until completely soft and mushy for 25-30 minutes,stir occasionally.check the seasonings, add more lemon juice if needed.Remove the cinnamon stick.For a more smooth chutney ,grind to a finer paste,then return to the saucepan.Mix a teaspoon of cornstarch with equal quantity of water.Stir in the chutney and simmer another 5-10 minutes.Cool and store in an sterilized air tight jar for over 2-3 months.

pineapple chutney is very common among us Bongs:-) we leave the pineapple cubed. love the flavor of ginger here & i add to mine too.. even tho it is not traditional for us.

shaikh said...

no doubt the idea of pineapple chutney is good and reicpe also but i m wondering that natural sweetness of pineapple will be saficient to give sweet taste.! you need to add some extra sugar to counter sharpness of ginger, lemon juice and sometime sourness of pineapple also. though i have not tried yet but feel so. pls correct me if i m wrong. thanks

Yasmeen said...

It depends on your taste Mr.shaikh.I like it less sweeter,Please add more if desired :)

Lori said...

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

I have just stumbled across your blog and put it in my favorites! I have about 1 quart or more of dried pineapple cubes I want to use up (they came in a bag salad I used to buy) - so though your recipe calls for fresh I'll give it a try - I am so happy to have found your recipe(s) and look forward too putting it together. (I knew I should have gotten a hot pepper today :-) )
Cheers,
Maire
