Cranberries are super duper high in dietary fiber content whereas the fresh cranberry offers abundant nutritional benefits. Fresh cranberries are high in vitamin C content and also contains vitamin B6. So, with high vitamin C you may experience better immune defense of your body, protection against the cardio vascular problems, and supple skin. But, commercial processing of the fresh cranberries to dried state leads to loss of precious vitamin C, vitamin B6, and vitamin A content. Anyhow, it is way quicker to prepare the cranberry chutney with dried cranberries, stores way easier than the fresh counterparts, and tastes a bit denser and less tangy than the fresh cranberries.
So, pick your preference and create this delicious preparation in a jiffy!

  • In a saucepan add the white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon powder, black pepper powder, and clove powder together.
  • Pour the water and heat the sugar and spice mix to boil for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the dried cranberries and diced apples to the pan.
  • Give everything a good stir and let the chutney boil for about 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  • Cool the chutney and it is ready to be used!

Tips.

  • You may cover and cook the chutney if you want to speed up the process.
  • Ideally, cook the chutney on low to medium flame for the juices to blend together nicely.
  • You may also enjoy this chutney with a dollop of your favorite ice cream.
  • You may replace dried cranberries with fresh or frozen ones as well. Just make sure you boil the cranberries in enough water to cook them well. And, add apples to the saucepan once the cranberries are half done.
