If your only experience with cranberries has been in sweet, jelled sauces, this spicy cranberry and apple chutney will provide a welcome change of pace for your grown-up palate!
Ingredients
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1 cup peeled, diced apple
  • 1 cup orange juice, preferably fresh
  • ½ cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons agave nectar or maple syrup, to taste
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients except the agave nectar in a deep saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook over low heat with the lid slightly ajar for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the liquid is mostly absorbed.
  2. Add agave nectar to taste and simmer uncovered for another 5 to 10 minutes until thick.
  3. Let the chutney cool to room temperature, then serve. Or, if making ahead of time, store in a sterilized jar, tightly covered but not sealed, and refrigerate. Before serving, bring to room temperature.

    I first made this recipe for Thanksgiving about 4 years ago, long before I ever seriously considered becoming vegan. Now I am a vegetarian, striving toward being a vegan, and I am looking forward to making this terrific chutney again this year, along with several of the other recipes on this site. Thank you for a great recipe…I think it is my very favorite holiday recipe!

    Sounds yummy, but we’re diabetic. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Astrid, would you be able to use liquid stevia in place of the agave or maple syrup? I’m not sure how that goes with a diabetic regimen; a little goes a long way.
