apple-chutney-344x450

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds McIntosh or Cortland apples, peeled, cored, and chopped (about 8 apples)
  • 1½ cups pitted and chopped Medjool dates (about 16 dates)
  • 1½ cups water, plus more if needed
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom

Directions

Combine all of the ingredients in a large pot or saucepan. Bring to a rapid simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the apples become soft enough to mash with the back of a spoon, 20-30 minutes. Add more water during cooking if needed to keep the sauce moist. Remove from heat. Using a potato masher or the back of a large spoon, mash to achieve the desired consistency. Serve warm or chilled.

Servings

Makes about 4½ cups

A sweet accompaniment to any meal, this spiced chutney is the perfect condiment to serve with turkey and chicken. (And it’s a great cover-up for overcooked meat. Hey, we’ve all done it!)
