Cranberry, Apple and Ginger Chutney/Sauce
I bought a massive bag of fresh cranberries at Costco and needed to do something with them. This turned out AMAZING, I picked it because it was all things I had around the kitchen that I needed to use up 🙂 I’ve made several modifications to the recipe I found and I think they where all good. The amount of sugar you add is up to you and how sweet you like your sauce. I will admit that since I didn’t have anything to put it on I just mixed it in a bowl with cream cheese and ate it. I’m pregnant, I’m allowed to do that right? Enjoy!
4 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander (optional if you have it)
1 cup water
1/2 cup minced onion
1/2 cup chopped Granny Smith apple
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
Chop onion and add to saucepan with a little butter or oil, turn it on low and let it brown slightly, stirring occasionally while you prep other ingredients. Add the white sugar and lightly caramelize.
Combine the cranberries, raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, coriander, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat until berries start to pop, about 5 minutes. Add the onion, apple, and celery; continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture begins to thicken, 5 to 10 more minutes. Transfer to a container and cool slightly. Refrigerate overnight to allow the flavors to blossom.
