Apple Mint Chutney
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.

Chutney Dressing:
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp apricot preserves
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground ginger

Apples and Mint:
2 cups Gala apples, peeled, cored and cut into small cubes (about 2 apples)
1/8 cup chopped fresh mint, plus sprigs for garnish

Mix together the chutney dressing. Mix in the apples and mint. Refrigerate for at least 30-minutes before serving. It is also good the next day.

    no I don’t make many changes…I’m not a great cook, most likely because I don’t like to cook…or maybe I don’t like to cook because I’m not a great cook… 😉 who knows? this sounds delicious…

      This is easy to make – the key is how much mint you add since it is strong in flavor. 🙂

    The basics are the same each year, but I like to add so etching new, too, not because the tried and true doesn’t work but because it’s fun to try so e of the fantastic recipes that appear during the holidays.

      Yes, it is always nice to add something new. There are always more recipes that I want to try than time available! Sometimes I rotate dishes. One year I will make my twice-baked potato casserole and the next I will try a different recipe.
