Instead of buying a jar of chutney, make this sweet-spicy, apricot-based version instead.

  1. 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  2. 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  3. 1/2 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  4. 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  5. 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  6. 1 scallion, minced
  7. Salt
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, raisins, ginger and curry powder and simmer over low heat until the vinegar has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Stir in the apricot preserves and scallion and season with salt. Let cool. Use on grilled ribs, chicken or lamb.
Make Ahead

The chutney can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
