Blueberry Chutney

Finally getting around to posting my blueberry chutney recipe from the blueberry-themed baby shower a couple of weekends ago. This is a great, flexible recipe that you adapt to whatever spices you have on-hand. I used this on my Blueberry Chutney-Glazed Chicken.


Ingredients

  • 1 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • olive oil
  • 1 pint organic blueberries
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1" knob fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 t fresh lemongrass, minced
  • 1/4 C organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 3 T vinegar (I used a white balsamic)
  • 1 t fresh herbs (I used a mixture of mint and thyme)
  • 1/2 t salt
  • juice from 1 organic lemon (I used a Meyer lemon)
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Procedure
In a small skillet, sauté onion in a splash of olive oil till it starts to soften, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Add the blueberries, cinnamon, ginger, lemongrass, dark brown sugar, vinegar, herbs, and salt.

Reduce the heat and let simmer for until it starts to thicken, approximately 15 minutes. Remove from heat and pour in the lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let chutney cool then refrigerate until ready to use.
