Cranberry Raisin Chutney; Paleo

The holidays are right around the corner which means lots of great food! I like to make my guests this delicious, healthy chutney that will be refreshing to their palates. This Paleo Cranberry Raisin Chutney is great on its own, as a condiment with roasted chicken, turkey, pork or ham, or as a dip. Personally, one of my favorite ways to enjoy this is the day after Thanksgiving as a relish on sandwiches made with that yummy leftover turkey!

Cranberry Raisin Chutney

Recipe: Yields about 4 cups

  • 1 pound fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple juice 
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon whole allspice
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper 
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. In a 3 to 4 quart pan, combine cranberries, raisins, maple syrup, apple juice and water. Cook over medium heat until berries begin to pop, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in ginger, allspice, cloves, cinnamon stick, cayenne pepper and chopped walnuts. Simmer, uncovered, stirring often, until almost all the liquid has evaporated, about 40 minutes.
  3. Let cool, then discard cinnamon stick. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. Bring to room temperature before serving.
