Instant Pot Peach Chutney

Peach Chutney is a delicious condiment full of sweet, tangy and spicy flavors. It is perfect recipe to preserve and enjoy summer fruit for longer period. Make this fruit chutney when peaches are their seasonal best. Savory peach chutney needs only 5 ingredients but gives a perfect flavor explosion with salty, spicy hint to super sweet peaches. It is AMAZING !

We love using various vegetables and fruits to make different condiments. You can use them as a spread for toasts, sandwiches or on pancakes and waffles. Apple Ginger Chutney, Red Tomato Chutney as well as Carrot Ginger Pickle and Green Chili Pickle are perfect summer recipes to make.

Peach Chutney

Preserving Summer Produce

I cherish summer months. Living in Chicago for over two decades, makes me appreaciate all four seasons to their best. There’s so much different things to do , to be with nature and ejoy your surroundings. What I miss most about summer is the bounty of local fruits and vegetables, besides the beautiful weather of course ! Thankfully, I can hold on to that summer feeling through my cooking and food. Like this delicious peach chutney that has become a family favorite.

Recipe Inspiration

We have a peach tree in our backyard. Every year, my entire family spends great amount of time nurturing and tending the garden together. It is so much fun to connect with nature, and to try our green thumbs.

Towards the end of the summer, peach tree produces bushels of large fruits with firm and creamy textured yellow flesh. Such a beautiful sight and nature’s blessings it is!

They say nature gives you back 10 fold. it is so true !! Our peach trees produce luscious peaches that are bursting with full, rich flavor year after year. This peach chutney preserves and cherishes them.

More Peach Recipes

Tomato Peach Caprese is my favorite summer time meal. Nothing better than farm fresh tomatoes, juicy peaches with creamy mozzarella cheese. Mango Peach Salsa also makes a routine appearance on our summer family dinners.

Sunrise Peach Drink is delightful mocktail that is perfect for thirst quencher during hot summer days.  For the dessert, Grilled Peaches with balsamic Glaze are simply drool-worthy. My family loves gluten free Peach Crumble for a classic comfort dessert along with dollop of ice cream on top !

Serving Ideas

You can use this chutney as a dip or jelly. I like to make it spreadable. So it goes well with toast, waffles, pancakes and crackers. It works well as a jam or jelly to spread on the sandwiches. I also add it on a charcuterie board and mezze platter.

For an easy to make cheese and dip board, combine crostini, crisp wafers, pretzels and pita bread. Serve it with different dips like Vegan Olive Tapenade, Bread Dipping Oil and Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus along with this Peach Chutney. You will love them as an appetizer for parties as well as family Friday night movie watching or game day.

Full of Flavors

This colorful fresh Peach Chutney is sweet with a little spicy kick from cayenne peppers. It is simply the best! Complex earthy flavors of ginger and roasted cumin add unbelievable depth to the taste.

Just 5 ingredients create unique distinctive flavors and the perfect balance of the spicy sweet and tangy. This delicious combination you will love too.

Instant Pot Peach Chutney

You can make this Peach Chutney on the stove-top or in the pressure cooker– both methods take about the same time. However, if you use Instant Pot, you don’t have to stand by the stove stirring and watching. Plus it controls the splatter better so clean up is easier. So pressure cooking it in the Instant Pot is my preferred method.

Peach Chutney InstantPot

To make the jam like consistency, you need to dry out the fruit in it’s own juices. So the cooking time will vary based on how juicy and sweet your peaches are. It will also depend on how big a batch you’re making.

The peaches I used are naturally super sweet. So I do not add any extra sweetener or sugar in this recipe. We like the tangy, sweet interchangeable notes as is.

However, If you prefer sweeter Taste, Add 1/4 cup brown sugar or any other sweetener of your choice while cooking.

No Ginger Garlic Chutney

Several Peach Chutney recipes on internet add onions and garlic in the preparation. My observation is that if you want to freeze the chutney with onion garlic for longer use, it gets bitter and doesn’t taste that great. So I do not recommend adding onion/garlic in making this Chutney.

Ingredients

Exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here’s what you need

Ripe peaches – Wash and dry peaches. Remove the pit and chop them into small pieces. (Removing the skin is an optional)
Ginger– remove the skin and grate it or finely chop it into very thin pieces.
Apple Cider vinegar – helps with preservation
Cumin seeds– roasted and coarsely ground
Cayenne pepper or red chili powder
Salt per taste

Stove Top Method

Heat a pan on medium heat. Add coarsely ground cumin seeds. Stir few times and let them toast some.

Add the chopped peaches and grated ginger into the pan. Add in cayenne pepper powder, salt and apple cider vinegar. Mix to combine the spices with the peaches.

When the fruit comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium and keep stirring intermittently.

Cook until the peaches are really soft. Mash some of the peaches with the back of a spoon/spatula as the chutney gets cooked

The chutney is done when it has reduced down to a jam-like consistency. Once the peaches are really soft and chutney has reached a desirable consistency, remove the pan from heat. The chutney will thicken as it cools down.

Let it cool down to room temperature and then serve. Keep the peach chutney refrigerated. It should be good for couple of weeks! In the freezer, I keep it up to 3 months.

Instant Pot Directions

Turn ON the Instant Pot. Add peaches, ginger, salt, spices and vinegar. Add 1/3 cup of water. Set Manual or Pressure Cook for 2 minute and let the pressure release naturally (NPR) for 10 minutes. After that you can release leftover pressure by moving the seal to Vent.

Open the lid, turn on SAUTE (High). Keep stirring every 2-3 minutes or so. The chutney is done when it has reduced down to a jam-like consistency. Cancel the Sauté.

Let it cool down to room temperature and then serve. Keep the peach chutney refrigerated. It should be good for couple of weeks! In the freezer, I keep it up to 3 months.
