We had a bumper crop of loquats this year and they ripened early (before the rainbow lorikeets arrived by the masses!) so we had lots to eat, share and preserve! I scoured the internet for different ways to preserve them and I was quite fruitful 🙂 I’ve made loquat preserve and loquat jelly but I think the best was the loquat chutney. It is a quick and easy way to preserve the loquats, resulting in a delicious Indian condiment.
I’ll paste the recipe here again, together with my improvisations.
Makes 1¼ cups (I made 4 times this as I had so much loquats!)
