Apple Chutney is a wonderful, spiced apple topping that is perfect for serving with or on meats.
Chutney has its origins in Indian cuisine and is typically made up of a fruit with sugar, spices, and vinegar or another acid.
There are many ways to make apple chutney, from the complex to quick and simple versions like this one. The chutney is often made as a preserve like jellies or jams, and those preserved versions are usually filled with added sugar.
This apple chutney has no added sweeteners and the simple spices allow the flavor of the fresh apples to shine through.
To Make this Apple Chutney you will need:
- ceylon cinnamon
- fresh thyme
- apple cider vinegar

You’ll start this recipe by peeling and dicing some of your favorite apples. I especially like using Granny Smith apples for the tart flavor.
You can use a variety of your favorites or whatever you have on hand.
Melt the ghee in a skillet over low heat. Add in your diced apples, along with the salt, pepper, cayenne, thyme, and ceylon cinnamon.
Gently toss the apples to coat them with all of the seasonings. Cook the apples for about 20 minutes, or until they are just soft and caramelized.
If you want a very soft apply chutney, simply cook the apples longer.
Stir in the apple cider vinegar.
Serve the chutney immediately or store it in the refrigerator for serving later.
Apple chutney goes very well with any “white” meat, like pork chops or roast chicken. As you can see in the photo below, I have paired it this time with a Spiced Pork Tenderloin.
Serve the chutney on the side or spooned over the meat dish.
A great variation you could do with this recipe is to add diced sautéed onion.
