Cranberry, Sour Cherry, and Grapefruit Chutney

3 cups

Sweet-tart and spiced with cardamom and cloves, this chutney is delicious with any type of poultry or game bird, including duck and quail.


  • 1 bag (12-ounce) fresh or frozen (thawed) cranberries

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom

  • Pinch of ground cloves

  • Pinch of salt

  • ½ cup dried sour cherries

  • 2 Ruby Red grapefruits, pith and peel removed, separated into segments


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine cranberries, sugar, vinegar, cardamom, cloves, and salt. Stir to combine well. Place over medium heat; cook, stirring constantly, until cranberries just begin to burst and soften, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat; stir in the cherries, and transfer mixture to a medium bowl. Let cool completely, then gently mix in grapefruit. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 5 days.
