Grape & Apple Chutney

The sweet-tart contrast of a good chutney lends just the right balance of flavor to foods. Grape & Apple Chutney features two common fruits many already have in their kitchen so it may be prepared at a moments notice. Accompany the condiment with grilled chicken &  pork tenderloin or use it as the secret ingredient for a recipe of The New Henry Bain Sauce. Beef cuts including ribeye steaks & New York strip steaks are just a bit better when paired with them. Learn how to make Grape & Apple Chutney that may be used for many main dish entrees & appetizers.

How To Make Grape & Apple Chutney

Making chutney from scratch tastes so much better than commercial varieties & it’s a lot like preparing homemade jam. Peel & chop the fruit, then mince the vegetables. Once those steps are complete, it’s just a matter of a small amount of cook & reduction time over the heat. Do not stray far as it cooks.
