Red Dried Fruit Chutney and  Cranberries

Today we’re making Red Dried Fruit Chutney. Chutney is a condiment which usually consists of a mix of chopped fruits, vinegar, spices, and sugar cooked into a chunky spread. Most chutneys are on the spicy-hot side, but it’s easy to adjust the heat factor to your liking. This Red Dried Fruit Chutney is not spicy, but feel free to add some heat to it.

I like chutney served over baked brie or used as a condiment paired with meats. There are hundreds of possible combinations of ingredients for chutney. Most chutneys have a fruit base, but many non-sweet vegetables can also work well.

Once you get the basic concept down, you can experiment with any number of fruits and vegetables. Use firm-fleshed, under-ripe fruits such as green mangos, peaches, apples, and nectarines.

  1. This looks beautiful! I’m making this for sure. What a great gift idea.

  2. This is FAB, Marie. I have only made chutney at Thanksgiving and buy jars of it to cover cheese throughout the year. What was I thinking??
