My sister and I made this cranberry chutney for our dad, after asking him if he had any requests other than apple pie for Thanksgiving. He replied, "The cranberry stuff that your mom used to make." I don’t like cranberry jelly or sauce, but this stuff is kind of yummy on turkey and it makes the kitchen smell delicious.
1 orange, peeled, tough membrane removed, chopped
1/4 cup orange juice
1 package (12 ounces) fresh cranberries
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 large Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored, chopped
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup chopped pecans and walnuts
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until cranberries are bursting. Chill until serving time.
Makes about about 4 cups of chutney.
