Cranberry, Ginger and Lemon Chutney
Author: Epicurus.com Kitchens
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 3 Cups, 12 servings
- 1 medium lemon
- 1 bag fresh or frozen cranberries (12 ounces)
- 2 Cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 Cup crystallized ginger in 1/4" dice (about 2 1/2 ounces)
- 1/3 Cup finely chopped onion
- 1 garlic clove; minced
- 1 jalapeno pepper; seeded and minced
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Grate the yellow zest from the lemon. Using a small sharp paring knife, cut away and discard the thick white pith. Cut the lemon crosswise in half and pick out the seeds with the tip of the knife. Dice the lemon into 1/4-inch pieces.
- Combine zest, lemon pieces and remaining ingredients in a medium nonreactive saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often to help dissolve the sugar. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the sauce is thick and the cranberries have burst, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely. (The chutney can be prepared up to 1 week ahead, covered tightly and refrigerated.)
- Remove the cinnamon stick just before serving. Serve at room temperature.
