This easy honeyed apple fennel chutney combines the sweetness of apples and honey and tang of vinegar with some onions and fennel to make a wonderful side dish for curry, chicken or pork. While this dish is great fresh, its even better after the flavors have had a chance to develop for a few hours (or days).
Apple Fennel Chutney Ingredients
1 tablespoon Olivum Reserve Temecula Olive Oil
3 cups organic fennel bulb (white part only without the hard core, chopped)
1 medium organic onion (about 1 cup chopped)
3 cups organic apple (peeled, cored and chopped)
1 teaspoon fennel seed
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup Harvest2U local honey
1/2 cup sugar
Starting with your favorite skillet, heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Saute chopped fennel for 2 minutes. Then add chopped onions and cook until onions begin to turn translucent, about 5 minutes.
And then toss in your chopped apple and fennel seeds, cook for 2 more minutes.
Next, add vinegar, honey and sugar. Finally, cook until apples are very soft and liquid has thickened to a light syrup.
When finished, serve immediately or allow flavors to blend overnight (or longer) in the refrigerator.
