Apple Raisin Chutney

When I think of fall so many great fruits and vegetables come to mind apples, gourdes, carrots, parsnips, potatoes and of course pumpkins. At first I was going to make pumpkin muffins with cream cheese filling, but the local grocery store had none of the ingredients I required. So plan B, was to make something with apples. I really love how fruit chutneys compliment spicy dishes and I new that apples compliment pork very well. So I spiced up some pork chops for the grill and made some apple raisin chutney served with late summer yellow and green zucchinis. (Spicy pork marinade to follow). I found a few chutney recipes, but in the end I guess I had in mind what I wanted it to taste like and made my own concoction. I day later I tried the chutney with cheese and bread...mmmm... it tasted like apple pie filling.

Not only am I happy about fall being here and being able to cook with local fall foods. But today marks the 1st day of two weeks of holidays. I had plans to be abroad, but due to injury I am now at home. However I am very happy with that. With the new house I will have the time to fix it up as desired, new paint, carpet and of course more time to cook and bake. So hopefully over the next two weeks I will be able to post some nice fall dishes.

Apple-Raisin Chutney

3 granny smith apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup sweet onion, diced
1 cup raisins (sultans)

I could eat that chutney all by itself, it looks awesome. Ice cream, pork chops, it works with anything :)
