This is the lazy one because it’s essentially just an on-the-fly adaptation of another recipe, my cranberry-pomegranate chutney. Why the apples? Why because they were prominently featured on 1001 Nights Baghdad shopping lists, of course…
To make it, simply follow the linked recipe above but with the following substitutions and amendments:
Omit: onion and fresh ginger
Add: an apple, chopped into small bits
Substitute: golden raisins for half or all the dried cranberries
To sweeten: use 1/2 a cup of honey and 1 cup of white sugar
…and that’s it! The mix of tart and sweet makes this a great companion dish for m’tabbal during an appetizer course.
