One of my favorite parts of the holiday meals are the leftovers. To me, there is nothing like a fab turkey or ham sandwich with a bit of cranberry relish to accent it. I have a fave store-bought Cranberry Orange Apple relish that I keep stocked in the pantry for those sandwich “emergencies” but, in my opinion, there is nothing like making your own. I love the savory note that chutney has and this Spiced Cherry Cranberry Chutney is a first pick contender for the holiday table.
This Spiced Cherry Cranberry Chutney melds sweet cherries and tart cranberries with a touch of apple, some brown sugar, and warm spices. The best thing is this chutney can be made with pantry ingredients you might already have on hand. I know in the fall/winter, I always tend to stockpile cranberries and dark sweet cherries in the freezer. Add a bit of fresh apple and onion and you are golden. Once everything has cooked down, one bite of this will have you forgetting about the store bought version of the typical cranberry sauce ever again.
Make this Spiced Cherry Cranberry Chutney for your next soiree but take my advice – hide a small jar of this lovely chutney in the fridge for those late night sandwich emergencies.
