I love Chutney but it is expensive to buy. Apples are plentiful and cheap in Nova Scotia (and many other locations) so I like to make this one to accompany samosas and anything else that needs a delicious kick. It's also very easy.

Got some Ambrosia apples on sale the other day & used those in this chutney! Followed your recipe right on down, & made your samosas to go along with it! Absolutely, deliciously wonderful little tasties that I'd be happy to make again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's round of Pick A Chef]
- 1 1⁄2 lbs apples (I have used many kinds)
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cloves or 1 teaspoon allspice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1⁄3 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 dash cayenne (or more, to taste)
Directions See How It's Made
- Coarsely chop the apples, with or without peel.
- Place them in a medium sized saucepan with all remaining ingredients.
- Bring to a boil, then lower heat to simmer.
- Simmer uncovered about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until everything is very soft.
- Enjoy the delicious smell wafting through your house.
- Cool and transfer to a sterile jar.
- Sometimes the apples I use are harder and still chunky at the end of cooking, so I mash them with the potato masher.
