Bacon Apple Chutney
grain-free • gluten-free • dairy-free • sugar-free
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 30 minutes
SERVINGS: 4-6 (makes about 2 cups of chutney)
- 1/2 lb sliced bacon, finely chopped
- 4 medium granny smith apples, peeled and finely chopped (about 3 cups)
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
- 2 Tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
Preheat a cast iron pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the chopped bacon and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp. Stir occasionally to prevent the bacon from burning. Remove the bacon from the pan with a slotted spoon and transfer onto a paper towel lined plate. Be sure to leave 1 – 2 tablespoons of bacon grease in the pan. Set the cooked bacon aside.
Lower the heat to medium, then add the chopped apples and onions to the pan. Stir to evenly coat with the bacon grease.
Pour the raw apple cider vinegar into the pan and stir to break up any of the brown bits that have stuck to the pan.
Add the ground cinnamon, cumin and sea salt to apple and onion mixture, and stir.
Lower the heat to medium-low and cover for 15 minutes to soften the chopped onion and apples.
When the onions and apples have become soft, remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the cooked, chopped bacon. Serve immediately or keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
You can serve the chutney cold or heated. This chutney is fantastic over chicken, beef and pork, or use it to top sliced raw cucumber or carrots.
