Apple Fennel Chutney

Apple Fennel Chutney – Sweetness of Apples and Honey

This easy honeyed apple fennel chutney combines the sweetness of apples and honey and the tang of vinegar with some onions and fennel to make an excellent side dish for curry, chicken, or pork. While this dish is excellent fresh, it’s even better after the flavors have had a chance to develop for a few hours (or days).
