The original of this recipe was found in the Taste of Home Holiday Recipe Card Collection 2009, & although it was listed as a 'winter' chutney, it can actually be made anytime that fresh pears are available! Especially good with poultry!

- 1⁄4 cup unsalted butter
- 2 large tart apples, peeled, cored, quartered, cut into 1/4-inch slices

- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground allspice
