Cranberry Chutney

This is an older recipe but it is a simply delicious complement to Thanksgiving dinner.

12 ou. bag fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup water
1 large apple, diced
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
orange zest if desired

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring mixture. After the berries pop (I help them along by mashing them against the side of the pot) and the mixture has thickened slightly, remove from heat and let cool completely. Chill.

  1. Sandra, I make the same chutney. We love it! Although I must confess, we like the canned cranberry sauce too. They are usually right beside one another on our table.
