Apple Chutney

Chutney is a perfect accompaniment to roast chicken or pork. We usually buy ours, but with our bountiful crop of apples I decided to try my hand at making some from scratch. It’s easy, actually, much easier than I expected!

Apple Chutney

  • Prep: 10 minutes
  • Cook: 45 minutes
  • Yield: Makes about 2 cups


  • 2 large tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp grated orange peel
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1 Put all of the ingredients (chopped apples, onion, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, orange zest, grated ginger, cinnamon) into a medium saucepan and stir to combine. Heat on high to bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 40 minutes.

2 Uncover and simmer over low heat for a few minutes more to cook off any excess liquid. Remove from heat and let cool.

Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
