Category: African, Condiments

 Ingredients List

  • 4 lb Slightly under ripe peaches
  • 3 c Sliced onions
  • 1/3 c Olive oil
  • 1 tb Turmeric
  • 1 tb Ground cumin
  • 2 ts Minced garlic
  • 1 ts Minced ginger
  • 1 ts Dried red pepper
  • 1/2 ts Pepper
  • 1/2 ts Ground cardamom
  • 1/2 ts Dry mustard
  • 1/4 ts Nutmeg
  • 1/4 ts Ground cloves.
  • 2 c White wine vinegar
  • 2/3 c Firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 c White sugar


Haven't made this for a couple of years, but it's pretty tasty. Saute
onions in olive oil for five minutes or until tender. Add spices and
saute for 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar and sugars, then simmer, partly
covered for 15 minutes.

Blanch peaches slightly in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain, peel
pit and slice. Add to onion mixture and simmer just until tender.
Transfer with slotted spoon to sterilized mason jar.

Reduce syrup over high heat to 1 1/2 cups. Add slowly to jars to
almost cover fruit. Stir. Fill jars slowly with syrup, cap loosely
and cool.

Tighten caps and let stand in dark place at least 2 weeks.

I don't remember where this came from, but I suspect that it was
either Gourmet or Sunset Magazine. In my handwritten copy it also
called for 2 teaspoons ground cumin as well as one tablespoon. I
omitted it above, but I think it should have been 2 teaspoons ground
