When a friend asked me to help pick some plums one neighborhood over, I couldn't say no. That takes local food to a whole new level for me. Four plums made vibrantly colorful, thick and juicy chutney. In the community spirit, cilantro came from Armitage Produce (Armitage and Kimball) on the way home.
Fresh Cilantro Plum Chutney
4 fresh plums, pitted and finely chopped
1 handful cilantro, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 dash cayenne powder for a bit of heat
4 shakes of salt
2 turns of freshly ground black pepper
Smash together with a pestle in a mortar and serve with your favorite summer veggie dish.
