Apple Chutney


Apple Chutney is perfect for fall or the holidays

to accompany pork, turkey,

roasted chicken or grilled salmon!


I came by this recipe for Apple Week

with The Novel Bakers, from a delicious read~

The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs.


Apple Chutney,

Makes 2 pints, using large Granny Smith apples



3 tart cooking apples, peeled, cored and diced (I used Granny Smith)

1/2 cup chopped white onion

1 tablespoon minced ginger root

1/2 cup orange juice

1/3 cup cider vinegar

1 teaspoon grainy mustard (I used a generous tablespoon)

1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup raisins or currants (I used currants)


Combine all ingredients except the raisins or currants in a heavy saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring constantly, then reduce to simmer and stir occasionally until most of the liquid has evaporated; about 45 minutes.


Remove from heat and add raisins/currants.

Store in the refrigerator covered up to 2 weeks or can using traditional methods.

~recipe courtesy of The Apple Orchard, via the Washington State Apple Commission.


Perfect to add to rolls of pork tenderloin

or turkey for a holiday party!


 Also delicious served with cheese & crackers

for entertaining!



Try it with a pepper crusted goat cheese,

bleu cheese or sharp cheddar!


And makes a delicious

hostess gift for the holidays

in half pint jars.

    Mary, this sounds good and I think I have all the ingredients on hand. Yippee!

    This sounds yummy Mary, I love Granny Smith’s! Also love that it makes a manageable amount. I’m sure it has great flavor for pork but Earl says it’s turkey time:@)

    I’m crazy about chutney but have never made it though it doesn’t seem too complicated except for the chopping. One of these days…..

    Hi Mary, I love chutney and your close up photo of the open jar makes me want to dig in! I have so many apples and this would be a good place to start using them ~~ the extra mustard sounds like a great idea too. Linda

    This sounds so good and not too hard to make. Love the little jars for hostess gifts. Your presentation is so pretty as always.

    Mary, that sounds delicious! Do you serve it cold right out of the fridge? Sounds like it would be good served warm.

      Cheryl, For sliders we use it cold but you can serve it warm or room temperature. It’s great grilled with cheese on a panini too :)

    Sounds delicious! A bit different than my experiments with apple chutney…need to try this one!

  17. November 1, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Oh my…this does sound good and looks amazing! Thanks so much for the recipe!

    YUM! Hey girl I’ve missed your creativity & had to pop by for a fix. Traveling & remodeling a house is a $$$ & time pit. I LOVED YOUR HAND PIE POST!!!! I would love to do that. I’m trying to get caught up & will treat myself with favorite blogs at least once a week. Heck… I even posted for the first time in ages. MAYBE I’ll get back in the swing. HUGS!

    I wish I hadn’t used up all my apples in a cake this week…now I’ll have to shop for more, as this really sounds yummy. Putting it on a turkey sandwich really appeals to me right now and what a great “take home” gift that would make for my T’day guests.
    Thanks a million for telling us how you made it.

    p.s. I would have increased the grainy mustard too…that stuff really doesn’t have much of a kick, huh?

    I am a big fan of chutney, but have never made an apple variety. Thanks for the recipe. I’ll be trying this one.
