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 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 Olive Oil
  • 3 cups organic fennel bulb (white part only without the hardcore, 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 local honey
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  1. Starting with your favorite skillet, heat one tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Saute chopped fennel for 2 minutes.
  2. Add chopped onions and cook until onions begin to turn translucent about 5 minutes.
  3. Toss in your chopped apple and fennel seeds, cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add vinegar, honey, and sugar. Finally, cook until apples are very soft and liquid has thickened to a light syrup.
  5. When finished, serve immediately or allow flavors to blend overnight (or longer) in the refrigerator.
