Applesauce with Attitude – Apple Chutney!

October 17, 2010

It looks like applesauce…..but one taste tells you that this is applesauce with Attitude! This is Apple Chutney! It’s sweet with just a touch of sour,  and spicy. This condiment is a perfect accompaniment for fall meals. (Bob has already requested it for Thanksgiving dinner!)

Since we still have a lot of Gala apples from our tree, I’ve been on the lookout for new ways to use them. I got the idea from Dan of IslandEAT who used his apple chutney on a pork tenderloin sandwich. It sounded like a fabulous combination!

Looking for an easy recipe that did not involve canning, I found the Apple Chutney recipe that Elise posted on Simply Recipes. I used honey instead of brown sugar, but other than that, I thought her ingredients were perfect.

I probably will make this for Thanksgiving dinner…along with my usual Cranberry Chutney, of course. (Stay tuned for that one!)

    that chutney has to be a great accompaniment to poultry! I would love to try it with a nice roasted chicken! Thanks for sharing your recipe…and I love the applesauce with attitude moniker!

      Thanks, Chef! It would be fabulous with poultry (like Thanksgiving turkey?) or pork. Or squash. Yesterday it was delicious with leftover rice and beef for my lunch. I’ve decided I need to double the recipe next time. 😉
