“This piquant chutney is not as sweet as traditional cranberry sauce. The bite of the fresh ginger will become more pronounced as the chutney rests. If you have any left after Thanksgiving, try it in turkey sandwiches with a smear of cream cheese. Oh. My. God.”

  1. Combine the cranberries, raisins, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves 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.

I made this according to the recipe and wouldn't change a thing. The onion and celery add complexity to the overall flavor which sets this cranberry condiment apart from similar recipes. Thank you for sharing this!



Really, Really Good!! BUT... I think it works best as a cranberry sauce. I was looking for an actual chutney to serve as an appetizer and this was a little too over the top alone. I DO think it will be great with Thanksgiving dinner & I will definately on making it again!! UPDATE: OK so my bad!! It really does need to sit over night to chill and firm up a little. Next day = 5 Stars!! YUM-O



A nice change from "your usual cranberry sauce". I found it works best with sweet white onions, and I cut the sugar in half, which came out just right for my taste. To reduce the "sharp" onion taste (if you are concerned about the onions), a little more work is required: start roasting the onions in about 1 teaspoon of oil first in the pot, then, when the onions are light golden brown, add the white sugar and lightly caramelize. Then add the water and the other ingredients as the original recipe calls for. That way, the onions release their full sweetness, while the edge is taken off. I also think, adding about 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon of ground coriander would spice it up a bit, but I have not tried that yet myself.
