Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine ingredients; simmer until thickened about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  2. Stir frequently as it thickens to prevent sticking.
  3. Pour boiling hot mixture into hot pint jars leaving 1/4-inch head space.
  4. Adjust caps and then process 10 minutes in boiling water bath.
  5. Note: For milder chutney an additional 1 quart of apples may be added.

Excellent and powerful flavor. I only made 1/16 of the recipe without the raisins - just enough to go on top of some Baked Brie for a holiday appetizer - served with crackers and apple slices. Couldn't get enough of it - thanks for sharing the recipe.

This is definitely a 5 star recipe. I can't wait to serve this chutney with a big, juicy ham. The flavour is excellent. I halved the recipe and used dried red pepper flakes instead of hot peppers, but otherwise didn't change a thing. Thank you!
