Special Cranberry Chutney, a wonderful recipe loaded with cranberries, apple, orange, golden raisins and pecans. Quick to make and great for freezing too! Serve as part of a dinner or with cold cuts.
Oh my goodness! This recipe for Special Cranberry Chutney really is VERY SPECIAL! When you take a look at the ingredients you will see just why.
This Christmas cranberry recipe is bursting with lovely flavors of apple, orange, raisins, and of course cranberries.
To add a little texture and bite, there's a nice measure of chopped pecans too.
This chutney is even freezer-friendly, so if you wanted to save some for through the year, or indeed make ahead, then this will be perfect. Freeze in portion sizes to suit your family and it's simply a case of bringing back to room temperature and hey presto! The chutney is ready for serving.
This is delicious served with a Turkey dinner, or with cold cuts, perhaps a nice cheese board, at parties... the possibilities are endless! You could also use any leftover chutney as a marinade on pork or chicken.
Serve this chutney alongside some homemade melba toast as part of a buffet too!
Thanks very much to Cathy Kopp for sharing her wonderful family recipe. It certainly is very special!
