    This easy apple chutney is a great companion for so many dishes - from sandwiches to pork chops. It is a sweet and tart apple chutney that is gorgeously spiced. Best made when local apples are in season.

    It would be useful to give an approximate weight of apples as they vary so much in size. Haven't made it for that reason.  -  20 Sep 2016


    I have to give this recipe a 5 because it won me our mock-Iron Chef competition! We put it over pheasant, we used red wine vinegar instead and it turned out great. Just the right amount of tang and sweetness.  -  23 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A great base recipe b/c it alllows you to add and substitute many ingredients so you can make it your own. I used nutmeg, cinnamon, plain old vinegar, and ground ginger, a small amount of maple bacon to make it my own. GREAT with pork chops!  -  04 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
