This is what we'd call a chutney, but I guess Brits would call a relish or salsa?

4kg plums (I used Mallard, a sharp jamming plum)
1kg onions
150g fresh coriander
150g green chillies
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp garam masala
Stone and finely slice the plums (I mean wafer thin)
Finely slice the onions (cutting across if the onions quite big/long)

Combine all the ingredients in a big bowl and leave in the fridge for a few hours, if the plum you've used is dark skinned you'll get a nice red coloured relish, acidity dependent on the plum you use. I've made it with sweet plums and added cider vinegar in the past.

This is a batch I made for Eid on Tuesday, I actually made two batches and pasteurised the rest in jam jars. A little less crunchy but still v nice.

It works with curry and rice, in wraps, and I think it'd be great in burgers

Looks good, might have to scale it down a bit though.

Sounds really good. I'd have to try it with Damsons as our 2nd plum tree with the broken branches has gone from producing a tasty plum in previous years to producing something that tastes like absolutely nothing, this year. I suppose under-ripe damsons would give as a good acidity hit.

Even ripe damsons work, some sweet plums do too. The acidity in the skin of some plums is incredible, still haven't found a variety to use for prunes that tastes anywhere near as sweet as shop bought.

I'll give it a go.
