This cranberry chutney recipe is a delicious twist on a classic condiment, with sweet, tangy, and spicy flavors that make it a perfect holiday side dish.


  • 1kg (9 cups) fresh cranberries
  • 3 large apples, peeled and grated
  • 2 large red onions, finely chopped
  • 2 oranges, juice and peel, sliced thinly
  • 250g (1½ cup) raisins
  • 250ml (1 cup) red wine
  • 250ml (1 cup) red wine vinegar
  • 500g (2¼ cups) brown sugar
  • 18g (1 tbsp) sea salt
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red chilli pepper, finely sliced
  • 8g (1 tbsp) ground ginger
  • 7g (1 tbsp) ground nutmeg
  • 8g (1 tbsp) ground cinnamon
  • 6g (1 tbsp) ground allspice


  1. Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan. 
  2. Stir over a medium heat until all the sugar has dissolved. 
  3. Turn up the heat until a boiling point is reached, then lower it to reach a steady simmer. Cook for 1 hour or until the mixture is thick. 
  4. Pour the chutney into hot sterilized jars and seal immediately. 
  5. Store in a cool, dark place for a month to let the chutney mature. 
  6. Serve with roast turkey or as part of a cheeseboard. Enjoy!


  • If you can’t get hold of fresh cranberries, frozen ones work just as well.
