Organic apples from the ArnoValley combine with sweet spices and Chianti red wine to create a chutney-style jelly that also serves as a unique condimento or perfected glaze with a sharp yet sweet flavor that complements grilled meats, pork, lamb and roasted chicken. An excellent accompaniment to cheese plates. Makes a flavorful glaze for turkey or ham. We use it as an ingredient to make a deliciously different cranberry sauce.
