Apple chutney recipe for cheese

This easy apple chutney recipe is the perfect accompaniment to any cheese board. (I do love a cheese board!!)Made with just a few simple ingredients, it is packed full of flavour. The apples are cooked down until they are soft and mushy, then combined with vinegar, sugar, and a variety of spices. The result is a sweet and tangy chutney with a slight kick of heat. Serve it alongside your favourite cheeses for a sophisticated appetizer or snack. Delicious!

Apple Chutney with Chilli

The apple chutney is enhanced by the heat from the cayenne pepper (I add 1/2 a teaspoon), which gives it an exciting edge. If you want to take things up to another level of spice for your dish, I recommend adding a red chilli pepper with the seeds removed, so they don’t overpower but still add plenty of flavours!

What type of apple to use for apple chutney

When it comes to creating a flavorful and spicy apple chutney, there are really no hard and fast rules. You can pretty much use any type of apple you like ( I did!).

However, I suggest using a firmer apple that is not too sweet for the best results. Granny Smith apples are a good option. You could also use Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious or Braeburn apples. Just be sure to avoid using overly ripe apples, as they will not hold up as well during the cooking process. You will have more of a smoother chutney rather than a chunky chutney, but they will still taste great! So, go ahead and experiment with different types of apples until you find the perfect one for your chutney!

Storing Chutney

I stored my chutney in hot, sterilised jars. As soon as the chutney is ready, pour it into a freshly hot sterilised jar and seal with the lid immediately for the perfect seal. As the chutney cools down, the lid with suck in (or you will hear a pop sound), making it properly sealed so you can store it for months!
