- 12 large apples, such as Cortland, Empire or McIntosh; peeled, cored, and roughly chopped
- 1 small yellow onion, peeled and chopped
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp beef base
- ¼ cup orange juice
- 4 cups water
Since chutney is primarily used to balance flavors or highlight one in particular, it has many uses. Spiced Apple Chutney is a little sweeter, so it makes a great accompaniment to your favorite autumn harvest dish. Think stuff like topping a juicy baked pork chop with it, or spooning a dollop on baked sweet potatoes. Spread it on pumpkin toast and have it with your morning coffee. Since this apple chutney pairs so well with cheese, feel free to serve it on your holiday cheese board.
I can’t help but emphasize that this truly is the best chutney for cheese, especially if you need raciette party ideas or are looking for cheese platter ideas for parties. The warm spices and sweetness of the apples compliment brie quite nicely, especially if you serve it warm. If you like plum jam with brie as much as I do, then you are going to go crazy when this autumn chutney is spooned over it.
This apple relish chutney also makes a great dip if you need interesting buffet party food ideas for adults (but hey, I bet the kids will like it, too!) Set it out in a pretty dish with a fancy spoon alongside crostini and brie, crackers, or toast points and let everyone help themselves.
