Garlicky Plum Chutney recipe

This garlicky, lightly spiced plum chutney is a great way to use up a glut of plums you may have and is a lovely alternative to apple chutney or sauce. Serve it with pork or cheese.


  • 1kg fresh plums
  • 475ml vinegar
  • 225g each brown sugar and caster sugar
  • 1 tsp. fennel seeds
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • Salt to taste


  1. Peel and mince the garlic cloves. Stone the plums and roughly chop.

  2. Heat the vinegar in a saucepan. Add plums, brown sugar, caster sugar, fennel seeds, minced garlic, nutmeg and a good pinch of salt.

  3. Cook over a low heat, simmering gently, for up to an hour until thickened and sticky. Spoon into sterilised jars.

This recipe makes around 2 standard 450g jar-fulls. Use whichever plums you have to hand, or a few different varieties.
