the greatest cranberry chutney you will ever taste

{in my humble opinion}

It’s a mostly Dave Lieberman, and a lil bit the goodness I love from the chutney I always had growing up.  And a little bit what I feel like at the moment.  

yumyumyum.  I cannot eat cranberry in a can. Call me snobby, but after you have this chutney, you will be singing my tune.

Ingredients to Start with:

  • 1 (10 to 16-ounce) bag fresh or frozen whole cranberries,
  • 2 crisp red apples, peeled, cored and sliced 1-inch thick  (today I only used one)
  • 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and finely grated  (I always double this number.  I love me some ginger!)
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • (I also add the juice and zest of half a lemon.)

Directions

Combine ingredients in a large pot. Bring to a simmer and cook until softened, reduced and thickened, about 30 minutes. Cool fully before serving.

Ingredients to add at the end if you so choose after cooling:

  • a handful of chopped walnuts
  • a handful of raisins or currants

YUM

Almost as good as the taste is the smell of your house when you make this yummyness.

Also helpful for this recipe is learning how to peel ginger effectively.  It is another trick I learned from Dave Lieberman.  A peeler peels too deep for the root — which has very thin skin.  Instead use the edge of a spoon and just rub it against the skin of the ginger.  Works every time!
