The Relish

Rosemary-Bourbon Apple Chutney

Chutneys offer bold flavor to a variety of foods lending a sweet-tart contrast to grilled meats, ham & even when paired with cheese selections. Fresh or dried fruits, vegetables or a combination of both make a good base for the highly seasoned relishes. They can be mild or spicy & prepared with or with or without alcohol which simply adds more complexity to these wonderful condiments. Learn how to make a Rosemary-Bourbon Apple Chutney that’s perfect to serve for Kentucky Derby parties.

How To Navigate & Garnish With Fresh Rosemary


Rosemary is a perennial herb with Mediterraneian roots that can be used to season & garnish foods but it also offers many health benefits. The evergreen leaves have been known to reduce inflammation & protect the immune system plus it is high in vitamins A, C & B6. It has a strong, astringent taste which makes it an excellent choice to use when grilling as it has the ability to compliment the bold, smoky flavors well. A little goes a long way so it’s always best to start small then add more, if desired.

The Technique

Although it darkens when cooked, a few of the leaves can be scattered over food surfaces to boost the appearance & lend additional good flavor just before serving. Be certain to set aside a few sprigs to use for this purpose as showcased in the the chutney or a delicious appetizer such as  in the case for Lemon-Ricotta Artichoke Dip. To store the herb for longer periods of time, rinse the sprigs under cool, running water then pat them dry. Roll them loosely in a paper towel & refrigerate up to a week.
