Cranberry Chutney / #CranberryWeek

Welcome to The Freshman Cook and my second recipe for Cranberry Week! Today I am sharing my Cranberry Chutney recipe. If you haven't had chutney, you may be wondering what it is.


Chutney is a dish that falls somewhere between  jam and a relish. It is made by slowly cooking the ingredients on the stovetop at a low temperature causing it to develop a dense texture.

Another great thing about chutney, other than its amazing taste, is the ability it has to meld the flavors together, over time. It tastes best if it is stored for a day or two before eating. So making it ahead of when you want to serve is a big plus when the holidays come around.

(printable recipe at end of page)

1 cup Water

1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

1/2 cup granulated Sugar

1/2 cup light brown Sugar

1- 12 ounce bag of Cranberries

1 cup fresh Orange, chopped

1/2 cup fresh Apple, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup golden Raisins

1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground Cloves

1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger



Using a medium saucepan on medium high heat, mix together the water, apple cider vinegar, and  white and brown sugar. Stir the ingredients and bring them to a simmer.

Peel, slice and then chop the orange pieces into small bites. Peel the apple, and chop into the same size pieces.


Add the cranberries, orange, apple, and raisins to the saucepan and stir together. Add the cloves, cinnamon and ginger, then stir until completely combined. Bring the chutney to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium. Simmer the chutney over medium heat until the mix thickens, and the fruit has softened, approx. 10-15 minutes.


Pour the chutney into a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Let the chutney cool before serving or refrigerating.
