Transcript:Cranberry ChutneyHi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make cranberry chutney.
For this video you will need:
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 small onion
- 12-oz of fresh cranberries
- 1 cup of raisins
- 1 1/2 cups of honey
- 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 cup of cider vinegar
- 3/4 cup of water
- 1 apple
Prepare Chutney IngredientsFirst cut off the end of the onion, take off the skin, and dice it into small pieces. You can do this with a knife or by using a food chopper. Turn on your stove to medium heat. Put the butter into a medium saucepan and spread it around until melted. Next add the onion and sauté until it is soft. Be sure that the onions do not brown.
Mix In Chutney IngredientsOnce the onions are tender, add the cranberries, raisins, and pour in the honey. Next add the spices of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Last add the liquids of vinegar and water. Mix everything together and bring it all to a boil. Now reduce the heat and simmer until the cranberries get soft. It may take about 15 minutes.
Add Apple to MixtureIn the meantime, peel an apple. Cut off the pieces from the core and dice them into pieces. These will be like chunks in the chutney, so keep chopping until they are as small as you d like.
Once the cranberries are soft, remove the pan from the heat. Add and stir in chopped apples. You can see that the cranberries and apples make this look like a thick and sweet chutney. Allow it to cool and then serve.
