Cranberry Sauce (Hot Chutney!)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

A deliciously different, spicy cranberry chutney-sauce. Fruity and rich in flavor with apples, oranges, golden raisins, and a whole heap of spices. More complex than a basic hot sauce or cranberry sauce, this is a sweet-heat sensation! Wonderful alongside the thanksgiving turkey, but also goes great with just about any beef, chicken or fish dish you can think of. Also a nice glaze for grilled or sauteed veggies. Cranberries aren't just for Thanksgivin' anymore! I use this tangy condiment all year round... Note: for the chutney flavor without the pepper heat, simply skip the peppers and hot sauce, still makes a wonderful condiment, with just the fruits and spices alone.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes, or until sauce thickens to a jam-like consistency. Chill until serving time. Keeps well in the fridge or freeze extra in small containers.

I rarely ever review recipes, but as it's right before Thanksgiving and I'm so grateful for the past 5 years I've been making this for the Holiday I felt compelled to write this! This is a go to classic and I highly recommend that people do not skip ingredients. I made this a few times with the omission of the hot sauce and red pepper flakes, but it tastes so much better with them! If you are looking for something a little different than regular old cranberry sauce and something that screams fall this is the recipe for you!

Pretty good receipe! I didn't have allspice nor apple cider vinegar, but it was delicious anyways. Make sure to cut the apple in really small pieces so it blends well in the sauce.

This is incredible! It was great as soon as it was made and I'm thinking tomorrow after the flavors have a chance to get to know one another better it will be fabulous!
