Apple and Raisin Chutney Recipe is a British style savory spread made with apples and raisin and a hint of cinnamon that provides the much required warmth. Apple and cinnamon is a match made in heaven and this chutney, sweetened with the addition of raisins is perfect food gift to share with your friends. My family is an apple lover both in fruits and technology, I make sure that on breakfast table apple is not missing.
I never prefer buying canned jams and spreads rather enjoy making them from scratch. Homemade spreads are free of any preservatives, food colours and artificial flavoring. The best part is you can make them in the quantity as per your requirement. Apple cinnamon is an age-old friendship and together they create a divine savory flavor, which is hard to resist, not too much sweet and still leaving traces of cinnamon and sugar in your taste buds.
For the Apple and Raisin Chutney, apples are fine chopped but you can grate them as well. The texture of the chutney should remain coarse and not very smooth, paste like. I have used powdered cinnamon but while cooking apples whole cinnamon sticks can also be added and you can discard them later or can preserve your spread along with the cinnamon sticks.
