One of the greatest things about being a food blogger is that I get to read a lot of other food blogs. We are a tight knit community and we support each other all the time.  This means I spend hours a day reading blogs and leaving comments. This also means I look at delicious recipes each and every day. Not a bad job if I say so myself.

Not so long ago I came across a recipe that gave me the inspiration for this dish.  Winnie, a fabulous blogger (and awesome person in general) writes at the blog Healthy Green Kitchen.  I saw her post for Apple Dried Cherry Chutney and decided I wanted to try making a chutney.  Since I know nothing about making a chutney I just winged it.  I read online that a chutney contains vinegar and that is what categorizes it as a chutney. I have no idea whether or not that is true. To be honest, I don’t really care. I’m calling this a chutney…or maybe a relish….what do you think?

There is added sweetness to the dish but I wanted to make sure it came off more savory than sweet.  With the cranberries and vinegar it has a level of tartness that paired lovely with maple syrup glazed pork chops and would also be lovely at any Thanksgiving table.  It would be a welcomed change to the normal canned variety of cranberry sauce…

Ick, you are so right - mealy apples are the worst! But I love good apples, and along with brussels sprouts and bacon, this sounds like the most delicious salad.

Your apple cranberry chutney sounds fantastic! I really like the idea of combining apples with cranberries. This would be nice with most roast meat dishes.
