Cranberry Chutney

Don’t ever use that canned cranberry sauce again.  Making your own cranberry sauce is easy and tastes so much better than red Jell-O substance that comes from the can.  My favorite way to eat this chutney is the day after thanksgiving on a big leftover turkey sandwich.


12 oz Fresh Cranberries
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup orange juice
1 tbsp Orange zest
Juice of one lemon
2 ripe pears – chopped
¼ cup dried apricots – chopped


Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil and cook until the cranberries skin pop.  Best served at room temperature.
