Quick Pear Chutney

Source: Martha Stewart Living, February 2003


  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 ripe but firm pears, cored and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 6 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread walnuts in a single layer on a small rimmed baking sheet, and toast until fragrant and browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool, and roughly chop. Set aside.

  2. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot, and saute until softened, about 2 minutes. Add pears, vinegar, honey, and cloves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook until pears are tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Discard cloves, and stir in raisins and reserved walnuts. Remove from heat. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    After reading the previous review I used only 4 tbs Cider Vinegar and still needed an extra tbs honey. I added the raisins after the mixture came to a boil and I also needed to cook it about 10 min. longer for pears to soften. Tasted great in the end.

    I was disappointed in this. It was too runny and too strong vinegar flavor.
