My Best Yet - Cranberry Apple Walnut Chutney

My new favorite chutney blend, you know how I adore cranberries!!  This one has all the right textures and chews - cranberries (chewy dried and fresh), crunchy walnuts and apples.  It takes like a cranberry apple pie!!  I had some today topped with a couple spoonfuls of vanilla yogurt and freshly made granola.

  • 1 bag (12 ounces) fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 cup chopped red gala apples (2 sm or 1 lg)
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar


  1. In a large saucepan, bring cranberries, sugar, ginger, and 2 tablespoons water to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; add apples, walnuts and cinnamon.  foodblog 001
  2. Continue to simmer until most of the cranberries have popped, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in vinegar and dried fruit (last to keep their chew).
  3. Remove relish from heat. Let cool to room temperature, and serve (or refrigerate in an airtight container up to 3 days).
