Good base

4 stars as I made a few modifications. Started with a small diced onion softened in a bit of butter. Used orange juice instead of water. As this added both sweet and acid I used about 1/4 cup honey instead of the sugar and about 2 tbsp red wine vinegar and a glug of white vinegar. Added 1/4 tsp each of nutmeg and cardamom. Made for a slightly mellow chutney, might increase the vinegar a bit next time but overall a very good and Christmasy accompaniment to turkey and good with cheese on crackers!

I forgot one item....please add to my review

I forgot one item.....1/2 cup chopped yellow onion. It's essential! Submitted on the same day...11/15/17

Great recipe on its own, but can be jazzed up!

This is a perfect starter and great on its own, but I have my own twist, which everyone loves. I used only 1/4 cup vinegar, and add: 1 clove minced garlic, 1 tsp salt, a dash of cayenne pepper, and 1/4 cup fresh ginger instead of ground. I also use the 1 cup sugar, but add an additional 1/4 cup of brown sugar. The flavor is amazing and complex! Bold yet just the right mix of sweet and tangy. It's a crowd pleaser, goes with everything, perfect on sandwiches (turkey, meatless, etc.) and an excellent gift.

I ommited the raisens because my wife and kids dont like raisens. I also omitted the vinegar and I repmaced it with orange and lemon juice with their zest. I also added a 1/2 cup of brandy. I also covered the cranberries with sugar overnight before i cooked them.

Absolutely Deeeeee-licious!!! Made it twice. First time true to recipe. Second time added some really hot Thai peppers. The heat really cooks out of them. We were surprised by that. But! This goes with chicken, turkey, pork , fish, etc. It's super tasty! Thanks!!
