Apple Recipe: Apple Chutney

We like this recipe because it allows us to make just one pint at a time. The recipe is easily doubled.

The chutney has a somewhat strong vinegar taste and is delicious with beef. The recipe is adapted from Home Made in the Kitchen: Traditional Recipes and Household Projects...

Apple Chutney

3 ½ c chopped apple (okay to leave the skins on if they are organic)
¾ c white vinegar
½ c honey
½ t turmeric
½ t ginger
pinch of cayenne
1/8 t crushed red pepper
½ t salt
1 T frozen orange juice concentrate

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan.

Cover and bring to a boil. Uncover and simmer about 20 minutes, until the liquid has evaporated and the mixture is thick.

While the mixture is cooking, sterilize either 1 pint jar or 2 half pint jars.

Once chutney is thick ladle into sterilized jars. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling water bath, or store in refrigerator.

Yield: 1 pint, or 2 half pints.
