Summer Plums with Grilled Pork Chops

Wild Plums and Wild Plum Chutney

Brined Charcoal Grilled Pork Chops

Pork Chop and Plum Chutney

On a recent local hike I came across a tree filled with ripe plums, and after gathering a large quantity I decided to make a chutney. These ripe plums were going to be too soft when cooked so I added a few nectarines for a firmer consistency. Another idea was to serve it with grilled pork chops; two great foods coming together to a form an amazing meal. 

2 cups diced wild or cultivated plums
3 diced nectarines
1/4 diced yellow onion
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 pinch fresh cracked pepper
1 cardamom pod cracked

1.  slowly cook all ingredients till they become soft and the liquid reduces to a thick jam-like consistency.

Note: Remove cardamom pod shell.
