Uvetta Apple Chutney Grilled Cheese

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food for Sharing: Uvetta Apple Chutney Grilled Cheese! When I was a kid, the word “chutney” meant something yucky with raisins and spices. That was before my taste buds matured and I acquired an exotic palate. Nowadays I appreciate the characteristics of fancy foods filled with specialized ingredients. By adding a spoonful of apple chutney to a grilled cheese sandwich, it transforms an ordinary meal into an extraordinary one. You should try it.

  1. This sounds just wonderful. As an aside, my mother and I used to love having a bit of her homemade jelly or jam with grilled cheese sandwiches. American cheese in those days, of course, was real cheese, not processed. Today, I sometimes do this with cheddar.
