Cranberry Sauce (Hot Chutney!)

"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."

  • 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!


Well i am a Taurus, with Cancer rising... They say that makes me a natural maker and lover of good foods. I would have to agree, i love to cook and i love to eat... anything SAVORY and delicious. As far as foods go- the more ginger, garlic and pepper - THE BETTER! And as far as sweets go - the more vanilla, Ginger and Spices - THE BETTER! i love to work carribean and indian flavors into traditional recipes for a unique flair, which is why my user name is Hybrid Cookin' - cause i think it's the best kind. Perhaps you agree? If not, try a couple of my recipes (once posted) and see what you think! My friends and family seem to really enjoy my cooking and i am excited at the chance to share some of my favorite flavors with others on this site - i think we all can learn from eachother - things that will make all of our cooking better. Bon Appetit! Or as my sweetie says: "Eat Good!"
