Apple chutney is a perfect accompaniment to roast chicken or pork! The chutney includes a combination of fresh apples, onion, ginger, orange peel, apple cider vinegar and brown sugar, giving it a tangy, spicy, sweet and sour flavor.

We usually buy chutney, but with our bountiful crop of apples I decided to try my hand at making some from scratch. It’s easy, actually, much easier than I expected!

You just put all of the ingredients into a pot, bring to a simmer, and cook until everything cooks through and the flavors meld together.

Ingredients

  • 2 large tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp grated orange peel
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Ingredients

  • 2 large tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp grated orange peel
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Method

1 Combine ingredients and simmer: Put all of the ingredients (chopped apples, onion, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, orange zest, grated ginger, cinnamon) into a medium saucepan and stir to combine.

Heat on high to bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 40 minutes.

2 Uncover and simmer off excess liquid: Uncover and simmer over low heat for a few minutes more to cook off any excess liquid. Remove from heat and let cool.

Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
