Ingredients

  • 1 cup cider vinegar (preferably unfiltered, such as Bragg Organic, organicdirect.com)
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup mixed dried fruit, such as currants, golden raisins, and chopped prunes
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger (from one 1 1/2-inch piece)
  • 10 whole cloves, crushed with the side of a knife (1/2 teaspoon)
  • 2 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 12 ounces fresh or thawed frozen cranberries (3 1/2 cups)

Cook's Note

Storage: Chutney can be refrigerated for up to 1 month.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring vinegar, sugar, onion, dried fruit, ginger, cloves, and cinnamon sticks to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Add cranberries. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer gently until cranberries are tender and start to burst, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, and let stand until cooled. Refrigerate until chilled if desired.

    This recipe would be good if not for the vinegar. Do not, I repeat, Do Not use the full amount of vinegar. 1/4 of a cup at the most and the rest apple juice. I'm not sure how the cooks allowed so much vinegar to be used because it was truly terrible. However, without so much vinegar, it was quite yummy!

    This recipe was God-awful!! Definitely dilute the vinegar or toss it out and use orange juice. Yuck!! I made the cranberry pear recipe from the Martha Stewart site last year. I've never had a bad experience with any of her recipes until now.

    I just made this, I did do a couple changes: I used 1/2 cup of cider vinegar and 1/2 cup apple cider and I had ground cloves so I used a little less than 1/2 tsp of that (instead of the cloves ground into 1/2 tsp). It is tangy and spiced! smells so good and tastes good too.

    I would consider halfing the vinegar. Final product was overwhelmingly vinegary!

    I sent an email asking about the apples, and was told it was in reference to the cider. Kind of disappointing.

    I went ahead and made this recipe as is and it was very good. A nice tangy accompaniment to turkey. Doesn't taste very sweet even with the 1 cup of brown sugar.

    I was wondering the same thing. Guess it's just the apple cider vinegar?

    Where is the apple in this Cranberry-Apple Chutney?
