If you are lucky enough to have a surplus of tamarillos, this is the recipe for you! Super easy to make and so delicious, a dollop of fresh mayo and a hit of tamarillo chutney will transform your next steak salad… YUM! Initially this chutney is a little tart but becomes sweeter with age – be patient or enjoy the ride ;-)
2.5 cups tamarillo flesh (scoop out the inside of the tamarillos)(10-12 tamarillos)
1 cup dates, chopped roughly
1 large red onion, sliced finely
1 lemon, sliced super thinly, then roughly chopped, skin and all
1/2 cup cider cinegar
1 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 teaspoon all spice
pinch cayenne pepper
pinch of Salt
Put all ingredients into heavy bottom pot. Bring to the boil and simmer for 30-40 minutes – you’ll know when it turns from stewed fruit to more of a syrupy sticky consistency .
Spoon into sterilised jars – done!
