This is a simple recipe, yet the resulting chutney is so full of flavor and colorful!
Nan’s Christmas Cranberry Chutney
2 cups fresh cranberries
2 cups sugar
3 Tbls. water
1 apple, chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped (I slice very fine in cuisinart)
1 Tbls. orange rind
1 cup orange juice
1 cup raisins (use golden)
1.2 teas. ground ginger
1/4 teas. ground cloves
cook cranberries, sugar and water for 5 minutes over medium heat. Then add all ingredients and continue cooking at a gentle simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring often. Let cool. As this cools, it will thicken. You will get about 3 cups of chutney.
This goes very well with ham. Place into jelly jars and share with friends and family!
