My mom always made her famous chutney on Thanksgiving. It is the perfect accompaniment to the savory, salty traditional holiday dishes. I’m talking about you mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and a huge serving of stuffing.

It is also great for leftovers and offers the perfect amount of sweetness to balance the palate. It is also delicious on pound cake and ice cream for a double dose of sugary delight.

This recipe comes together in a flash. Simply dump everything into a pan, heat, and wait for the cranberries to pop! Ensure all the cranberries have popped before removing the pan from the heat. Let cool for about 45 minutes to an hour and then transfer to a glass bowl and refrigerate for up to 1 week.



  • 1 cup orange, cut into 1" sections
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 4 cups fresh cranberries, 1 standard-size bag
  • 1 cup Apple unpeeled and chopped into 1" sections
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup walnuts roughly chopped
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbl. white vinegar


  1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan and stir. Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat. Continue cooking, stirring often, until all of the cranberries have popped, about 10 - 15 minutes. Make sure to not overcook.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool for 45 minutes to an hour.
  3. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
