Apple Chutney
« on: June 17, 2013, 12:14:26 PM »
This chutney is delightful served with meats or cheeses.

2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced medium
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup golden raisins, raisins, dried cranberries, dried cherries or dried blueberries
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon OR a cinnamon stick
1/4 teaspoon pepper (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt

Heat butter in medium saucepan over medium heat until bubbling around edges. Add walnuts and toast, stirring often for 2 minutes. Remove walnuts to bowl with slotted spoon. Add apples, sauté for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer. Add raisins and seasonings and let cook for 10-15 minutes until liquid is a saucy consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired.
Add walnuts.

May be kept in an air-tight container and refrigerated for one week.

It sounds awesome, but on that fruit part, are you saying 1/4 cup of ONE of them?  If so, which one do you use?  It seems the consistency would be different using dried vs golden raisins, but that's the one I'd pick, I think.

I would use only one type. I think that a holiday variety with cranberries would be good.
