Cranberry white-wine chutney

January 21, 2016


Author Notes: This chutney plays well with all the usual suspects (curries, cheese boards) and a few unlikely ones - peanut butter sandwiches, omelets, potatoes. I like Gewurtztraminer, Moscato or fruity Riesling best, but use any white wine you like. Cumin seeds give more flavor if toasted. Adapted from Winter Chutney by Chef Allen Susser of Miami.Nancy

Directions

  1. In a large pot, saute the chopped onion in oil until golden. Add chopped ginger & cook one minute more. Add wine, vinegar, sugar and spices. Simmer 5 minutes.
  2. Add chopped fruit and cranberries. Bring to a boil. Lower heat & simmer 8 minutes. Strain fruit & set it aside. Return the liquid to the pot.
  3. Simmer liquid about 15 minutes or until it forms a syrup (probably need to watch or stay close by during this period). Return fruit to pot and simmer 3 minutes. The chutney is now done.
