A Mustard Apple Chutney Recipe

Even though summer is coming to a close, it does not mean that the party is over. Break out the grill tongs this fall and get grilling – whether it is for autumn harvest parties, tailgating with friends or just watching the game. I took one look at some gorgeous Granny Smith apples I had on hand and a delicious idea was born – savory apple chutney.

Apple Chutney is one of those recipes that brings the wow factor to a dish. This recipe allows for improvisation – essentially, once you master it you can make it your own whether it’s adding some raisins and spices to the mix or, perhaps, you can add some crisp bell peppers – the choice is yours. Knowing how much I adore spicy mustard, I added some Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard to the simmering sweet apples and onions, which added so much flavor. Sweet and savory with a bit of a spicy bite, this easy Mustard Apple Chutney is perfect for your next tailgate or get together. To take this delicious frank over the top, I added shredded sharp cheddar cheese to complement the apples.
