Recipe by Scott Simmons
"I live in the Columbia River Gorge. So many cherries are produced in a very short period, that during cherry harvest, farmers sell pounds of the stuff. I created a savory recipe because there's only so much cherry pie and ice cream one man can eat!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored and chopped
minced fresh ginger
Chinese five-spice powder
Worked like a charm! We really enjoyed it! Thanks!
This is a great idea. Execution could be better. The recipe above is heavy on the vinegar and sugar and the cherry flavor takes a back seat. Tried it again with only 3 Tbsp cider vinegar, a lot less sugar, and used Garam Masala paste instead of Chinese five spice, and it was spot on. Thanks for the idea though!
I loved this! It's wonderful with crackers and goat or havarti cheese, as well as over pork. I have worked in catering and at fancy events we would prepare a cheese tray with many different cheeses and ramekins of honey (sprinkled with a few white sesame seeds) and chutney along with nice crackers. We provided little demitasse spoons and cheese knives so everyone could pick their favorite cracker and cheese and then drizzle some honey and chutney on top. The sweet/savory flavor is so sophisticated! This combination was always available at the most elegant events. Just be sure to not cook too long or you will end up with cherry jam!
This recipe had tons of great flavor from the fruit and the spices, but we felt it was a bit heavy on the vinegar. When we make it again, we will add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more brown sugar. We also added about an 1/8 teaspoon cardamom. Yum!
Really nice... love it on cheese
This is one of the best chutneys I have ever tasted! I would not change a thing. The 5 spice seasoning and cider vinegar are key, so don't skimp there.
I made it today and it was WAY too vinegary! I'm going to try again but with only a tad of vinegar.
