Cranberry, Ginger and Orange Chutney

Con Poulos
Active time 25 mins
Total time 50 mins
Yield Makes 5 1/2 cups
This chunky cranberry-orange sauce is super-fresh-tasting because the cranberries are simmered briefly and the orange sections are added near the end of cooking.

Ingredients

  • 2 large navel oranges
  • 2 pounds fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh ginger
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. Using a sharp knife, peel the oranges, removing all of the bitter white pith. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Squeeze the juice from the membranes into the bowl. Cut the orange sections into 1-inch pieces.

  2. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberries and water with 1/4 cup of orange juice from the bowl and bring to a simmer over moderate heat. Cover and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the cranberries have popped, about 10 minutes. Add the vinegar, both sugars, the ginger and orange pieces and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until thick, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly, then season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
