Ingredients List

Spice up the harvest season with a warm, homemade apple chutney that tops creamy, buttery gouda and crackers. They're a tasty treat on a crisp fall day.


  1. Bring the apples, red onion, cider vinegar, brown sugar, allspice, ginger, cinnamon and red pepper flakes to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; simmer, covered, for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Uncover; increase heat to medium. Cook and stir until liquid is evaporated. Cool.
  2. Cut gouda into 24 slices. Place a gouda slice on each cracker; top with chutney. Garnish with thyme leaves if desired.

Recipe Tips

  • Any brand of Wisconsin gouda cheese can be used.
  • We ranged the brown sugar to suit tastes. Try the bottom of the range if you like your chutney a little sweet and tangy.

Cheesemonger Tip

Young gouda cheese has a sweet curd that’s buttery, creamy with a nutty finish. When gouda is aged, the flavor becomes more complex with caramel notes and butterscotch sweetness; and it has a slight crystalline texture.
