Spicy Peach and Pear Chutney

I like fast food - really delicious homemade fast food that is - so I carry on sharing the things of my heART that are of little fuss and will garner very much pleasure.

With a few very ripe peaches and pears at hand, I decided to make a chutney last week, and I must say, it's so so so good. 

Ingredients (Rough amounts):

3 cups Peaches & Pears 
1.5 Red Onions 
1 cup sliced dates
A knob of Fresh Ginger (3cmx3cm)
1 Tbsp dry Mint 
1 Tbsp Rosemary 
1 Tbsp Thyme
2/3 Cup White Vinegar
1/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tsp Salt 
1/2 Tsp Chili Flakes
1 Tsp Coriander Seeds
1 Tsp Mustard Seeds
3 Cloves
Cinammon Stick  
A whole lotta love ;) 

Chop up your fruits, slice the onions, & grate/finely chop ginger. 
Throw everything into a pot, on medium heat and simply walk away. It'll look like chaos, but the smell will hook you in a short while ;).
 I cooked mine, lidless for about 45mins, tasted it, played with some of the ingredients (so easy to get it so right), and left it simmering, with lid on for another little while longer.
Essentially, you want to reduce the liquids, so carry on cooking til you've got a good stew going. :) 

Yes, that's all. Let me know how it goes, what you ate your chutney with, and questions, should you have some. :)
It goes perfectly with a good old French Cheese, meat, atop your favorite plant based burger (note to self, get that up soon ;)),  or the traditional way, accompanying a curry, or samosa's. There's just no limits on what we can create, right? Let's throw away what we "know," about food, and play with it like a child experimenting and exploring. 

Lotsa love :**
