A few nights ago, I made this chutney on a whim. It was so easy to make and such a big hit. I served it with a small wheel of Brie that I quickly marked on the grill and grilled toast points. Everybody loved the soft melty cheese with the sweet and savory chutney. The best part was I made the chutney way ahead of time and quickly grilled the rest when I was ready to serve.
1Tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 Tbsp Butter
1 Granny Smith Apple, diced small
1/2 Cup Dried Apricots, diced small
1/2 Cup Golden Raisins
1-2 Tbsp Sugar
Pinch of Salt
1/4 Cup Apple Juice
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
Heat pan on high and add oil, then butter. When butter is melted, add the apple and sauté for one minute. Add apricots, raisins, sugar and salt and lower heat to medium. Cook until sugar melts and caramelizes, about 3-5 minutes.
Add apple juice and cider vinegar and simmer a few more minutes until saucy. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Cool to room temperature and serve with cheese and grilled bread or crackers.
