Cranberry Raisin Chutney
This aromatic-spiced cranberry and raisin chutney goes well with roasted chicken, turkey, pork and ham.
1 pound (about 4 cups) fresh or frozen cranberries
3/4 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup undiluted frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
6 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon whole allspice
10 whole cloves
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1 small tart green apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
- In a 3 to 4-quart pan, combine cranberries, raisins, honey, apple juice concentrate, vinegar, and water. Cook over medium heat until berries begin to pop, about 10 minutes.
- Stir in ginger, allspice, cloves, cinnamon stick, red pepper, onion, celery, and apple. Simmer, uncovered, stirring often, until apple is very soft and almost all liquid has evaporated, about 40 minutes.
- Let cool, then discard cinnamon stick. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. Bring to room temperature before serving.
Makes about 4 cups.
