  • 2 tsp whole cloves
  • 225g pitted medjool dates
  • 275g (about 3) yellow nectarines, peeled and cut into eighths
  • 1 small brown onion, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 350ml malt vinegar
  • 110g dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Carman's Super Seed & Grain Crackers to serve
  • sharp cheese (aged cheddar or Parmesan) to serve


  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 30 minutes
  • Serves: 6 - 8 as a snack


  1. Place cinnamon and cloves in muslin cloth (or clean Chux cloth).  Tie with kitchen string to form a parcel.
  2. Combine dates, nectarines, onion, vinegar, sugar, salt and oil in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add the spice parcel then cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes or until mixture comes to the boil.  Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.  Remove lid and cook uncovered for a further 10 mins or until dates are soft and the chutney is thick and jam-like in consistency.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely before removing and discarding the spice parcel.  Serve with your favourite flavour of Carman’s Super Seed & Grain Crackers and sharp cheese.
