Cut a small cross into the base of each nectarine, then tip into a large heatproof bowl and cover with just-boiled water. Leave for 30 seconds-1 minute, then drain and peel away the skins using a sharp knife. Chop into chunks and remove the stones.
Put the nectarine pieces and all the remaining ingredients in a stock pot or jam pan with 200ml of water. Bring to a simmer over a medium heat and cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 35-45 minutes or until the mixture has thickened and is jammy.
Transfer to a sterilised 500g jar while the jar is still hot, then seal. Leave to cool completely before adding any labels. The chutney will keep in a cool place, unopened, for six months, or for one month in the fridge once opened. Serve with cheese or on sarnies. Or finely chop any larger pieces of nectarine in the chutney, stir these back through and brush the chutney over ham for the final 5-10 minutes of cooking.
