Christmas Spiced Apple and Walnut Chutney Recipe

Christmas Spiced Apple and Walnut Chutney Recipe - motherhooddiaries

I am not a huge fan of mulled wine, mince pies and Christmas cake, but what I am partial to is creating a Christmassy version of my favourite dishes, like my Christmas Tree pastries, Christmas pancakes and delicious chutney sauces.

This particular chutney recipe has been taken from The Ideas Kitchen and slightly adapted to serve four people. And, because we do not have a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00275FV5K” locale=”UK” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”motherho-21″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]bread maker[/easyazon_link], my version uses a [easyazon_link identifier=”B009WNG46A” locale=”UK” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”motherho-21″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]slow cooker[/easyazon_link] instead. This particular recipe takes a long time to make in a slow cooker, so please allow at least 6 hours for this recipe.

The Ideas Kitchen has some great Christmas chutney recipes on their website, but this one particularly caught my eye because I am a huge apple chutney fan and I would love to taste a Christmas spiced version of this recipe.


A few points to note before you start. I have included the cup measurements to each ingredient because my weighing scales’ batteries died on me. So, if you do not have any weighing scales to hand, then you can still make this recipe. Also, each Bramley apple weighs approximately 80g, which means that you will need around six Bramley apples for this recipe. I only used four because 1) I would be the only person eating the chutney, 2) the final recipe will have a more subtle apple spice to it and 3) the boys ate the other two apples…

Moving on.

So, without further ado, here is the recipe for the Christmas Spiced Apple and Walnut Chutney. Spoiler alert – it is delicious!

I enjoyed my new deliciously zingy apple chutney with some Ryvita, feta cheese and tomato. I’m trying to enjoy a new veganish lifestyle, so I would replace the feta with some Violife – still tastes pretty darn good, though!
