Trader Joe’s Apple Cranberry Chutney
The picture doesn’t do it justice, but what you see above is possibly the simplest, tastiest, most addictive appetizer I have ever had. It’s simple because all it takes is pouring a jar of Trader Joe’s apple cranberry chutney over a log of goat cheese and serving it with crackers. It’s tasty because the chutney is made from all sorts of delicious spices I can’t stop thinking about. And it’s addictive because, well..I just can’t have enough.
I can promise you I was not paid or asked to do a review of this chutney (though you’d think so after all the posts we’ve written on Trader Joe’s products). I plain and simply just like it. It adds instant flavor to appetizers, main courses, even desserts! Not to mention, it’s unlike any chutney I have tasted. I’m not necessarily a chutney guru but I do have basis for comparison and this is by far my favorite.
My friend Beth had a couple friends over to watch The Academy Awards and enjoy some appetizers. She served this goat cheese and cranberry chutney appetizer recommended by Trader Joe’s and I was hooked the minute I tried it. The two of us could not stop raving about the chutney. At this point, I didn’t even care who won for Best Movie, I just wanted more of this cranberry chutney!
But not only does Trader Joe’s make the wonderful chutney, they also came up with the idea of pouring it over goat cheese for an appetizer. The best part is you can serve it for just about anything. Having a few friends over? Serve this dip. Having an Easter Dinner? Start with this glorious flavor combination. It’s incredibly versatile but it will also go incredibly fast (at least if Beth and I are around). Enjoy!
This delicious cranberry goat cheese appetizer could not be easier or more delicious! Serve at a holiday gathering or at home for something tasty!
