Today I’m excited to welcome back Trish Carty who is going to share her fermented peach chutney recipe. Trish is a fellow Nutritional Therapist and fermentation expert who blogs over at Keep The Beet.

Here’s Trish to tell you more:

Thanks again Craig for having me back!  Glad to be here and share this fun and simple recipe for a fermented peach chutney.As a pastry chef, my recipe for peach chutney was developed after many years of making different chutnies with my some of favorite fruits in season.  Of course, right NOW is the perfect time for  peach chutney!

These days I really love to utilize the art of lacto-fermentation for my preservation method.  I love the subtle tang and slight fizz created by the lactic acid.  It adds a whole new level of taste and complexity. Knowing that lacto-fermentation adds additional nutrients, enzyme activity and beneficial gut bacteria is an added bonus.

This recipe can be tweaked in many ways with different spices.  Feel free to experiment and add or subtract things based on your personal preferences.

Enjoy from Keep the Beet!
