Serve a chutney with any Indian curry for mild sweetness to balance the savory spiciness. This recipe for Easy Apple Chutney is so simple, yet so flavorful! I usually just simmer up a batch while I’m working on the curry.
- 6 apples, cored and cut into ½-inch dice (between 4 and 5 cups)
- 1 cup chopped white or sweet onion
- 1 tablespoon grated or minced fresh ginger
- 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (1-2 oranges)
- 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 3/4 cup light brown or coconut sugar, lightly packed
- 1 teaspoon whole dried mustard seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon pink sea salt or to taste
- 3/4 cup raisins
- Combine the apples, onion, ginger, orange juice, vinegar, brown sugar, mustard seeds, pepper flakes and salt in a large saucepan.
- Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
- Reduce the heat to simmer and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Take off the heat and add the raisins.
- Set aside to cool and serve with your meal. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
