Each step along the way

Tonight I'm making the peach chutney.  It's takes time and I decided to enjoy it, photographing each step along the way.  This image is one of my favorites.  It's an early step -- the peaches have been scored at the bottom, put in a pot of simmering water for thirty seconds, then doused in ice water.  This makes it easier to peel the peaches but it also makes the color of the skins even more glorious.

Hours later. The chutney is simmering on the stove, leaving the house heavy with the smell of apple cider vinegar and brown sugar.  In a few minutes I will return to the kitchen and finish, putting the chutney in mason jars.
