Chutney is an Indian spread in many forms, including tomato, strawberry, plum, and apple chutney. Apple Chutney happens to be one of the most popular types of chutney, and with good reason. The robust combination of sweet and savory flavors is simply irresistible. Best of all, apple chutney is super easy to make and does not contain tons of sugar like traditional store-bought chutney. Instead, it's made with olive oil, onions, Granny Smith apples, golden raisins, apple cider vinegar, honey, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice, which are all paleo-friendly. In addition to this, due to the apple cider vinegar, the apple chutney will last in the fridge for a few weeks. All in all, apple chutney is sweet yet tart and is the perfect way to liven up any dish. 

What do you use apple chutney for?

Apple chutney can be used as an accompaniment to many dishes. It's perfect for roasted chicken or pork. However, you can also add a tablespoon or two of apple chutney to sandwiches or use it to jazz up Indian Curry Chicken or regular dishes like Grilled Pork Tenderloin.    

How Long Will homemade apple chutney last?

As long as the apple chutney is stored in an airtight container in the fridge, it will last for 1-2 weeks.   

What does Apple chutney taste like?

Apple chutney has a tart yet sweet and warm spicy flavor from the cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.   

How do you know if chutney has gone bad?

Spoiled chutney will develop a rancid odor. In addition to this, it will have an off taste and color. Mold may also grow on the surface of the chutney. Nevertheless, if the apple chutney shows any signs of spoilage, toss it in the trash.
