Apple chutney is a perfect accompaniment to roast chicken or pork! The chutney includes a combination of fresh apples, onion, ginger, orange peel, apple cider vinegar and brown sugar, giving it a tangy, spicy, sweet and sour flavor.
We usually buy chutney, 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!
You just put all of the ingredients into a pot, bring to a simmer, and cook until everything cooks through and the flavors meld together.
