Cranberry Chutney

The one food I get most request for recipe is my Cranberry chutney. It’s such easy thing to make and takes almost no time so I love making this and giving it away as gift when my imagination is on vacation. Cranberries are terrific food but again a food many don’t use or eat besides on Thanks Giving. I love juicing cranberries and blend them with beet juice. I also love eating dried cranberries. Cranberries contains a lot of antioxidants, specially the dried ones. Fresh cranberries has a antibacterial components so it a great fruit to eat/drink if you have a urinary tract infection. My chutney is nice addition to pretty much everything, pan fried tofu, seitan or bean patties. To make it easy for everyone here is my recipe so enjoy.

Cranberry chutney, makes one large jar
I bag fresh cranberries
1 cup water
1 cup brown sugar
3 cloves grounded 
1 tsp ginger powder or use fresh
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup peeled and chopped apple
1 cup raisins
Place everything in a pot and bring to boil. Boil for 5 minutes or to you hear the cranberries pop. Be careful since they can pop on you. Take cranberries of the stove and let sit until completely cool. Pour into clean glass jars. Enjoy!!!
