Spiced Cherry Chutney

Spiced Cherry Chutney

This easy, tangy-sweet accompaniment is bursting with fruit flavor and a hint of spice.  Makes a great pairing with sheep’s milk or ripened cheese.

2 tbsp. butter
½ c. onion, finely minced
¾ c. dried tart cherries, coarsely chopped
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. brown sugar
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
¼ c. toasted walnuts, chopped

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter.  Add onion and sautee onion until translucent, about 3 minutes.

Add cherries and stir thoroughly until coated with butter.  Add balsamic, water, brown sugar and nutmeg.  Continue to cook and stir until almost all of the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and add the toasted walnuts.  Transfer to serving dish and allow to cool before serving.  May be made ahead.  Refrigerate leftovers and use within a week.
