BM# 72: Week 4/ Day 2 Theme: Dips, Chutneys and Spreads Dish: Cranberry Apple Chutney
Today I have a chutney made with cranberries and apple. Saw this on Sapna’s blog and had to try it right away because I had all the ingredients needed. Original recipe is from Taste of Home. Cranberries are everywhere during Thanksgiving and this time of the year. I froze some cranberries after Thanksgiving and used them in the chutney here. Adding apples to the chutney cuts through the tartness of cranberries balancing the whole dish.
The recipe also has some warm spices making it so fragrant and flavorful. It smells amazing when making this chutney. It tastes sweet, tart, spicy and delicious, all at the same time. The consistency of the chutney is up to you. If you like it chunky, then leave it chunky otherwise mash it with a potato masher or the back of the spoon until nice and smooth. Cranberry chutney is usually made for Thanksgiving. But this spicy sweet chutney can be served around the year. It is great to serve with tortilla chips, rotis, parathas and mixed with cream cheese as a spread. I’ve even mixed it with my yogurt, topped with granola and ate it for breakfast. It keeps for up to 2~3 weeks in the fridge.
