Savory, sweet, and delicious curried peaches.

Of all the things you’re doing with peaches the question is, are you making curried peaches?

If you’re not making curried peaches, then you need to start! They’re absolutely delicious! Savory, sweet, with a hint of spice. This condiment is a perfect pairing with pork, chicken, or even with a nice vegetable dish. These stewed peaches are a delightfully easy to make and will bring new life to dishes they’re paired with.

In Punjab or most of North India for that matter, we don’t cook with curry powder. It’s as foreign to the cuisine as togorashi or harissa. But between these curried peaches and curry egg salad, I’m forced to admit that it’s a delicious addition to dishes. Normally, I’m not a fan of sweet and savory flavors together, but as with the curry powder, Thai and Caribbean dishes prove that I have no idea what I’m talking about and that sweet and savory were always meant to be paired together.

The first time I had anything like this dish was at a Trini restaurant, which if you haven’t had Trinidadian food, omg are you missing out! Now that I’m back after reminiscing about two of my favorite Trini restaurants (Pam’s Kitchen, in Seattle, and Freda’s in Manhattan)..actually, there is no coming back from great Trinidadian cuisine. Instead there’s just poutily moving on. So the bottom line is, make these peaches, they’re delicious! They’re reminiscent of some of my favorite Caribbean flavors and they’re shockingly easy to make!
