This spiced apple chutney is packed full of apples, dried cherries, ginger, and just a touch of jalapeño peppers. It’s the perfect mix of savory apple flavor.
A few years ago I made a recipe for an cranberry apple chutney.
It was a delicious dish that paired perfectly with Thanksgiving turkey.
Plus it was a nice change of pace to the normal plain Jane cranberry sauce.
This chutney is a lovely chunky condiment that has a nice vinegary bite.
What is spiced apple chutney?
If you’re curious what exactly is a chutney it’s a relish-like condiment usually made from cooking together fruit, vegetables, and spiced together with vinegar.
The result is a sweet-tart combination that pairs perfectly with turkey, pork, and even chicken!
This version is a mix of apples, jalapeno peppers, red onion, dried cherries, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, ginger, garlic, and just a touch of apple pie spice.
It’s a delightful combination that really packs a punch of flavor.
