    Peach chutney

    When peaches aren’t dangling from trees or being bitten into they should be waiting for you like golden orbs of summertime carefully packed into jars for enjoyment all year round. Sadly with the pace of life for most of us, time to pack and preserve them is scarce. This peachy chutney, however, can be made and eaten all year round thanks to the convenience of tinned peaches in juice. Serve this chunky peach chutney with a large wedge of Dutch walnut gouda, grilled peach halves if they are in season, and plenty of salty pancetta or dried ham. Photograph by Jani Shepherd
