Cranberry Apple Chutney

Cranberry Chutney:  Ready to be cooked!

By popular demand I pop by the ole Young Grasshopper to share this AWESOME Cranberry Chutney recipe. 

I love this stuff, sweet and tangy.

This recipe makes 6 Pints plus 1 1/2 pint. Great gifts.... I use it on sandwiches, on Brie [try it in a baked Brie.... YUM] on Crostini and of course on the Thanksgiving table.

6 Golden Delicious apples, peeled & chopped [chunky --see picture above]
4 bags cranberries, rinsed
3 cups light brown sugar
Cranberry Chutney Brie Bites

1 cup champagne vinegar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/2 tablespoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Throw it all in a large pan, toss to coat the fruit with the sugar/spices and then heat over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 25-30 minutes.

I then "sorta can" it....  I use Mason jars and fill hot and invert for a couple minutes to seal. It will last for months in refrigerator [but not REALLY canned].


Be Thankful every day <3
