My Favorite Christmas Recipe


Day 2 of the Wives of Faith blog carnival, and it's all about the FOOD!

I love to eat. The older I get, I find that I have to moderate my portions, because let's face it, it's tough to stop at just one of anything!

So, I think I'll share a new, moderately healthy recipe that I discovered last year, then LOST, then rediscovered this year! It's for cranberry chutney.

A delicious cranberry chutney with apples, oranges, golden raisins, and spices, perfect alongside pork, turkey, and chicken main dishes.


  • 1 orange, peeled, tough membrane removed, chopped
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 package (12 ounces) fresh cranberries
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 large Golden Delicious apple, peeled, cored, chopped
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until cranberries are bursting. Chill until serving time; freeze surplus in small containers. Makes about about 4 cups of chutney.

YUM! I have to try this one. I bet the ginger in there is great! I have a package of cranberries in the freezer that I was wondering what to do with.
