Easy Apple and Spiced Grape Chutney

Easy Apple and Spiced Grape Chutney

Nothing tastes more like the comfort of Fall than apples and spices!  It’s too easy to make your own chutney, which serves as the perfect accompaniment to Quick-Brined Rosemary Pork Chops.  Add even more flavor using spiced jam from the Preserving Place, a beautiful locally-owned and operated artisan store located in the Westside district of Atlanta and conveniently ships all across the country!

What (your ingredients):

1 tablespoon butter

3 apples, diced

¼ cup raisins or dried cranberries

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

3 tablespoons Spiced Grapes 

¾ teaspoon dried ground ginger

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon dried mustard

⅟8 teaspoon allspice

How (your directions):

In a fry pan over medium heat, melt butter.  Add diced apples and saute for 5 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients and stir until evenly distributed throughout pan.

Lower heat, cover with lid, and simmer for 15 minutes.

Serve over Brined Rosemary Pork Chops with your favorite vegetable.


Why (the science):  Do not peel your apples EVER!  The pectin in the apple peel provides filling fiber that improves digestion and helps lower cholesterol, as do the grape skins and raisins :)
