We love serving cranberry sauce as a sweet side with our holiday meals — but, traditional cranberry sauce can be a little too sweet. This year we decided to try something new – cranberry chutney.
This recipe for cranberry chutney was simple to prepare — all the ingredients go in one pot, and cook for about 30 minutes. And, to save time during the busy holiday season, it can be made 2-3 days in advance.
My cranberry chutney is healthier than traditional cranberry sauce – it has more fruit and vegetables, and half the sugar. The finished product has a great sweet-tangy flavor, with garam masala and red pepper flakes giving it an extra kick. If you don’t have garam masala, you can substitute allspice or curry powder instead.
Julie’s Cranberry Chutney is a great side dish to serve with roasted turkey, chicken, or pork. It’s also an excellent complement to cheese, such as low-fat yogurt or cheese. Happy Holidays!
