Holiday menu is just incomplete without cranberry chutney, and store-bought chutney or cranberry sauce can never beat homemade cranberry fruit chutney. This cranberry mixed fruit chutney is perfect for the holiday season; you can make it in advance too.
Cranberry is available in the fresh produce section for a small time of the year. Whenever cranberries are in the season I buy few bags as I can use cranberries for many recipes. You can also easily freeze these fresh cranberries and you can use them in different recipes; ranging from desserts and pies to sauce and chutneys. Cranberries are very nutritious and detoxifying so these are also good for smoothies.
