Although they are traditionally associated with Hanukkah, latkes or potato pancakes, make a delicious appetizer even after the holiday. The thin, crispy shredded potatoes can act as a scrumptious base for everything from sour cream and smoked salmon to spicy apple chutney — as is the case with this recipe. When making latkes, it's important to squeeze the excess water out of the potatoes. It's a tedious job that normally ruins a kitchen towel, but it's essential to creating a cake that has a crunchy texture. These savory bites would be welcome on a spread of appetizers on New Year's Eve, so get the method now.
A couple weeks ago, at a buffet dinner, I came across this gross-looking condiment. The only ingredient I recognized was pecans.
As I was about to quickly pass by, I noticed a little sign that said, "Tropical Fruit Chutney with Pecans — Tastes better than it looks!" I couldn't help but laugh; the poor chutney was so ugly it needed a disclaimer!
After snapping a quick picture, I scooped some onto my plate. Could you be as brave?
Store-bought rotisserie chicken is one of the tastiest culinary shortcuts around. It's incredibly moist and flavorful, but all you have to do to prepare it is pull the meat off the bird. Since I love leftover sandwiches, I combined my current passion for chutney and bread-and-butter pickles with some excess chicken from a recent dinner.
The mango chutney, salty-sweet pickles, and smoky chicken come together to create a perfectly provocative bite, while the melted swiss and sprouts hold the potentially slippery sandwich in place. It's a ridiculously easy meal you can make in minutes, but the flavors are anything but simple. To get the recipe and step-by-step photos, read more

I hate to say it, but pretty soon the peak season for butternut squash will be over. Butternut squash are best from early Fall to Winter, and although Spring means a plethora of appetizing vegetables, it's sad to see the squash go. To make the most of it while we can, serve a curried version of the veggie tonight. It's a delicious meal atop couscous, flavored with peanuts and chutney. This recipe is perfect for the vegetarian in your life, so get it now and read more
Just because it's the middle of the week doesn't mean you can't enjoy a delicious steak dinner.

Chunks of sweet potato are mixed with a chunky, mango chutney and sweet, dried cranberries. The final result is a flavorful textured accompaniment to steaks.

A spicy condiment made from fruits or vegetables along with vinegar, sugar and spices. It comes from the East Indian word "chatni."
It can range from sweet to hot and is delicious alongside various curry dishes. I enjoy sweet chutneys, paired with bread and cheese.
Several types of chutney include: onion, tomato, mango, garlic, etc. and they can range in texture from smooth to chunky.
