Categories: African, Condiments, Ceideburg 2
Yield: 1 Servings
4 lb Slightly under ripe peaches
3 c Sliced onions
1/3 c Olive oil
1 tb Turmeric
1 tb Ground cumin
2 ts Minced garlic
1 ts Minced ginger
1 ts Dried red pepper
1/2 ts Pepper
1/2 ts Ground cardamom

Haven't made this for a couple of years, but it's pretty tasty. Saute
onions in olive oil for five minutes or until tender. Add spices and
saute for 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar and sugars, then simmer, partly
covered for 15 minutes.
Blanch peaches slightly in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain, peel
pit and slice. Add to onion mixture and simmer just until tender.
Transfer with slotted spoon to sterilized mason jar.
Reduce syrup over high heat to 1 1/2 cups. Add slowly to jars to
almost cover fruit. Stir. Fill jars slowly with syrup, cap loosely
Tighten caps and let stand in dark place at least 2 weeks.

omitted it above, but I think it should have been 2 teaspoons ground
