The Simple Steps

This recipe really comes together in a flash! Start off by incorporating everything except the dried fruit in a medium skillet.

Once the sirup mixture is at a simmer, add the dried fruit and continue simmering until the fruit plumps slightly and absorbs 1/4-1/2 of the liquid (1-2 minutes depending on the type of dried fruit).

The Superb Flavors

The mix of maple sirup + bourbon + orange zest in this dried fruit chutney is nothing short of perfect.

A little smokey, a little boozy and all that depth of flavor combined with deep, rich notes of dried fruits and citrus. Y-U-M!!

Maple Bourbon Fall Chutney

  • 1 c pure maple sirup (I prefer the darkest you can find)
  • 1-2 shots bourbon whiskey
  • 1 t orange zest
  • pinch of pink Himalayan salt
  • 2 c chopped dried fruit medley*

In a medium skillet, over medium flame, combine first 4 ingredients and bring to a simmer.

Add dried fruit and continue simmering for 1-2 minutes (or until fruit plumps and absorbs about a quarter to half of the sirup mixture).

Serve warm, with crackers over cream cheese.

To store, refrigerate in an airtight container.

Makes 2 cups

*the medley I used for this recipe was a pre-packaged blend that included dried peaches, pears, apricots, apples and jewel-toned raisins.

Note – if chutney becomes too thick, add 1/4 c apple juice to thin. Can be re-warmed in the microwave (in 30 second increments). Can be refrigerated up to 6 weeks.
