Ginger Peach Chutney

Ginger is a spicy rhizome containing numerous healing properties. It has been used for centuries in oriental medicine to reduce inflammation, soothe nausea, and fight colds. The peach is also nothing to sneeze at either. A single raw peach contains 333mg of potassium, 510IU of vitamin A as well as small amounts of niacin, vitamin K, folate, and choline.

In Chinese medicine peaches and ginger are considered to be warming foods, great to eat in early spring when weather changes and early peaches begin to ripen. This recipe is specifically designed to help the body adjust to the growing warmth of early spring.

Ginger Peach Chutney

  • 4 organic peaches diced
  • 1/4 cup organic green onions, sliced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. fresh organic ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1-2 tsp organic grade B maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 dash freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of ground coriander

Chop peaches into small chunks. Gently fold in green onions, ginger, liquids, and maple syrup (optional). It you are sensitive to sugar or are trying to reduce carbs, skip the syrup. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and coriander and gently toss. Serve cool as a salsa – or – warm gently for a few minutes over medium-low heat and serve as a chutney on meats.
