Apple Chutney & Grilled Cheese
For the Chutney:
¼ C Brown sugar
1 C Red wine vinegar
½ Small onion, finely diced
2 tsp Ginger, finely chopped
½ tsp Salt
Zest of ¼ of a lemon
8 oz. Fresh apple, stems removed and cubed
For the grilled cheese:
Bread of choice
Cheese of choice
1. In a saucepan, combine all of the ingredients except the apples.
2. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
3. Simmer until the liquid is reduced by 2/3, about 15 minutes.
4. Stir in the apples and continue simmering until the apples are soft and slightly broken down, and chutney is thick - about 15 more minutes. Chop as desired.
5. Allow cooling.
To assemble the grilled cheese, butter the bread slightly on one side. On the un-buttered side, slather on a few teaspoons of chutney. Lay it butter side down into a greased skillet. Shred the cheese over the chutney and top with the other slice of bread, butter side up. Cook, until browned and crispy on both sides and cheese is melted.s
