Peach Chutney

This is my version of peach chutney as of last Saturday!
Peel & dice a good dozen golden peaches & 2 apples ( I was given some cooking apples)
juice of 2 lemons
Add a rounded cup of organic raw sugar
2 tsps of good salt
2 cups of raisins..I used some golden raisins & some mixed giant ones
1 dsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp garam marsala
1 glove or two if garlic, chopped & a finely chopped fresh chilli. (I like to use Jalapenos)
garlic & chilli are optional of course
I also added a piece of finely grated a gorgeous colour & depth of flavour.
When fresh tumeric is unavailable I use a peeled frozen version that is always in stock at the Asian shop in Queen Street here in Hastings. Powdered tumeric is ok but gives an entirely different result.
 Simmer fruit altogether for an hour or so until thickened a lovely rich colour.
Check the seasoning & adjust to your own taste. I have not used any vinegar at all in this batch & the flavour is so much more rounded & delicious.
 Pour in to clean, hot, sterilized jars. Seal when cold.
