The testing of recipes to determine the Thanksgiving menu continues. Today recipe is an Apple Mint Chutney to see if it would be a good compliment to the turkey and ham. We enjoy sauces and chutney as part of our meal. This is a wonderful recipe that is flavorful with the addition of fresh mint. It is a great topping for grilled chicken, center-cut pork chops, pancakes, and the Apple Mint Chutney can be enjoyed on its own! Thinking about it more I bet it would be a great topping for a dessert. This was such an easy recipe to make and had a lot of flavor that it has a spot for Thanksgiving dinner. The Stuffed Baked Sweet Potatoes will also be served on Thanksgiving. I was inspired from this recipe and made my own changes.
I am sure many of you are busy planning your Thanksgiving menu. Do you have any favorite dishes that you like to make each year? Or do you tend to change your menu each year? I tend to make a lot of changes each year as I enjoy trying new recipes.
