Sweet Fruit Chutney
PREP TIME: 30 Minutes

In this recipe, we have sautéed apples with four different spices and red wine to create a rich, sweet topping that is perfect for ice cream. Feel free to experiment with pears, peaches or your favorite fruit.


  • 4 fresh apples, pears or peaches
  • 1 tbsp golden raisins
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 2 ounces red wine

Dice apples ½ inch thick with skin on. In a 10-inch sauté pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add apples and raisins and sauté until tender. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and allspice. Stir until brown sugar is melted and creates a smooth sauce with the butter. Remove skillet from heat and pour in red wine. NOTE: Be extremely careful, as wine will flame up when placed back onto the fire. However, it will extinguish itself quickly. Serve over ice cream.
