Originating in India chutneys are typical british culture bitter-sweet compotes, then spread all over the world. . The term chutney comes from the East Indian chatni, meaning “strongly spiced”. It is described as a condiment which usually consists of a mix of chopped fruits, vinegar, spices and sugar. To prepare our chutney, we used the Mirabelles plums; this particular variety is mostly found in Switzerland. Small, yellow, with a round shape, the flavor is sweet and firm. As hard to find, we thank our friend, Gabriella, the so called “Gabri” who offering us a whole basket, gave us the opportunity to taste and appreciate them. To enjoy during the year the intense fragrance of our chutney, we prepared and we potted, for storage in our pantry and taste it as often as we will enjoy and remember summertime.
