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.

    Last year I started baking bread, this year it’s gonna be all about fruits and vegetables in any form of preserving. The apple chutney was a good start today. We’ll enjoy it for a few days.
