Sorghum-Apple Chutney
makes 1 1/2 cups

Expect a bright, tangy blend that is gently sweetened & lightly perfumed with seasonal spices. Serve the chutney with grilled pork tenderloin or chicken.

1 3/4 lbs Granny Smith apples, peeled & diced {about 4 large}
1 cup ginger ale
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 Tbsp sorghum
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger 

Bring the apples, the ginger ale, the lemon juice, the brown sugar, the sorghum, the cinnamon & the ginger to a simmer in a 3 1/2-quart saucepan with tall sides over Medium heat, stirring occasionally, 25 minutes or until about 1 Tbsp of the liquid remains. Do not walk away while preparing the filling as the mixture bubbles vigorously. Continue cooking an additional 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Press the apples with the back of the spoon to break them up a bit. The mixture will be very thick. Remove from the heat. Chill at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.
