I love making chutneys. They’re simple to make and pair perfectly with chicken or pork for a tasty weeknight meal. This apple chutney is a recent favorite of mine. Many chutney recipes use raisins; I decided to use dried cherries instead.
This apple chutney recipe is easy to prepare and a wonderful way to enjoy fall's bounty! Dried cherries are used in place of raisins to enhance the flavor.
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 2-3 medium tart apples (3 cups)
- 2 large shallots, sliced thin (1 cup)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 3/4 cup dried cherries
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 3/4 cup apple cider
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, sweat shallots in butter. While they're sweating you can peel, core and roughly chop the apples.
Add the apples to the saucepan and then add the lemon juice, stirring. Turn up the heat.
Add the brown sugar and dried cherries while simmering.
Add the apple cider, vinegar and spices. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and cover.
Simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cover and allow excess liquid to cook off.
