Spicy Peach Chutney

1 pound of fresh ripe peaches
1 small onion finely chopped
2 serrano chilies seeded and finely chopped
1 small piece of cinnamon
1/4 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of vinegar
1/4 tsp of turmeric
1 tsp of red chili/cayenne  powder (or to taste)
salt to taste

You will need to skin the peaches.  To do this very easily, you must bring some water to boil.  Once the water is boiling turn off the stove and place your fresh peaches into the hot water for about 2-3 minutes.  Then take them out of the water and the skin should peel away very easily.   Chop up your peaches and place in a bowl with  any juice that the have until you finish the next step. 

In a pan place all the ingredients and allow to simmer on medium heat for 15-20 minutes.  Make sure you stir periodically so the chutney does not stick to the pan.
Once the chutney is done cooking allow to cool well.  I suggest allowing the flavors to develop in fridge overnight before you serve it for best results.  Enjoy.
