Cranberry Masala Chutney
Made this recipe just as directed - with just a few additions. I did use brown sugar instead of white, but I also had to add a bit extra - 2 Tbsp. Then I Added 3 red Serrano peppers, 2 teaspoons of Tea Masala and and extra Apple. I also cooked it a little longer. Served it up with Roasted duck and potatoes, following a Greek Salad. Wasn't sure hubby was going to love it, as mustard pickles are his usual thing. He LOVED it. The Tea Masala added a comfort component, like cinnamon does, and the serranos just a wee bit of heat. Was delicious with succulent duck meat. Thank you Ocean Spray!!
After scouring the internet to find a recipe for Cranberry Chutney that required ingredients that I readily have available I decided to try this one. I read all of the reviews and decided to trust the reviewers.
I used 3/4 cup of brown sugar instead of 1 cup of granulated sugar. I wish I would have used an entire cup of brown sugar. Instead of using all of the vinegar noted I used 2 tbls of balsamic vinegar. (You can not taste the vinegar) I added the following ingredients that were recommended based upon the reviews: 1/2 cup pecans, a tiny bit of orange zest, 1/2 cup crushed pineapple, and 1/2 cup Crasins.
This tastes amazing after slightly cooled and smells wonderful while simmering. This recipe is a "Keeper" An elegant side dish for holiday meals.
I made this recipe and would use waaaay less vinegar.
It was quite bitter. I added some brown sugar and liquid Stivia and a dash of salt. Much better now.
Love this recipe. Made a few changes
Sub 1 c sugar with 1/2 - 3/4 c brown sugar
Zest of orange
1/2 c orange marmalade
1/2 c chopped pecans
My family asks me to make this as gifts during the holidays!!
Going to try this recipe
I wish cranberries were not so difficult to find. I like making my chutney ahead of the holidays, and I process it in a hot water canner so that by the time Thanksgiving and Christmas get here the flavors have had time to blend and mellow. Never tried this recipe, but since it is an Oceanspray recipe I am expecting great things from it!
