    Yum! This was perfect with some sharp white cheddar on a cracker. I didn't realize the recipe made as much as it did, I froze the rest in 3 separate portions for later. It was a bit vinegar-y by itself but combined with the creaminess of the cheese it worked really well.
    This is really good!!!! Served w goat cheese and pita chips! So glad I canned the rest as it will go with everything.
    this is great stuff. made it last week to have with pork roast. For Thanksgiving i added some of it to half of my traditional bread dressing/stuffing which i always make in muffin tins to increase the number of crispy parts my family loves. adding this chutney was a hug success and was loved by all. Thanks Ina!!!!!! you do it again.
    This tasted absolutely fantastic with my latkes for Thanksgivukkah! I ran out of apple cider vinegar so I just used a apple cider and about 3 tbs of balsamic vinegar to give it that kick. Also I used craisins instead of raisins.
    I just made this and only giving it 5 stars as I see everyone else did! I tasted one little apple and it seems a little vinegary, so hopefully as it cools that will mellow out a bit. It also took longer to cook. I simmered it, which didn't seem as clear in the directions. It looks and smells amazing! I love the thickness and look forward to serving it with baked chicken and also for Thanksgiving dinner! Ina never fails me!!
    I have made this recipe twice and it is superb! Layer sharp cheese over a hearty cracker and top with chutney. This got rave reviews from my guests.
    This was delicious! Served it with pork tenderloin as well as with cheese and crackers.
    YUM! So mad at myself for taking so long to make this... It's the perfect combination of sweet, tangy, and spicy, all at the same time. Thank you Ina!
    Served it with Beecher's Flagship cheese and crackers .Followed the directions exactly but didn't add raisins.Smooth ,sharp and rich at the same time. Absolutely delicious!
    My Realtor son served this last night at a Twilight Wine and Cheese open house. He had several good cheeses but my favorite was served on the pepper crusted goat cheese and the Stilton blue cheese. Loved it. I would give it 5+ stars.
    do u mean it was a Wine & Cheese open house that was themed after the Twilight series? Sounds classy!
    Made this last night after watching Ina make it. Served it today with cheddar and crackers like she shows. It got devoured.
