Loquat Chutney

8 ingredients

I discovered that the tree bearing fruit in my garden is a loquat tree. It’s under an oak tree so I imagine that it wasn’t planted there deliberately but was the result of seed transfer by a bird. I decided to make chutney from my unexpected bounty. I used a standard recipe for chutney as the basis but the astringent nature of the loquats made it too vinegary. After a bit of tweaking, this was my final recipe. I liked the way that the loquats kept their shape and the ginger, mustard seed and chilli are still visible so you can see the flavour as well as taste it.
