This is delicious served with a Turkey dinner, or with cold cuts, perhaps a nice cheese board, at parties... the possibilities are endless! You could also use any leftover chutney as a marinade on pork or chicken.

    Wonderful! Also, versatile. One time I didn’t have an apple on hand, so added pomegranate arils. It was wonderful! I prefer more tang, so I use half the sugar. Fresh ginger works well, too.

    iI have made this recipe before, but lost the recipe. I knew the ingredients & looked up recipe.
    This is the best chutney I have made & eaten.
    The only adjustment I have made is adding either apple pie spice (extra complimentary flavors) or extra cinnamon as I am a cinnamon nut. I also add
    extra nuts- same reason.
