Updated September 30, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh or frozen cranberries (4 cups)
  • 2 small pears, peeled, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Steps

  • 1
    In 3-quart saucepan, mix all ingredients. Heat to boiling over high heat, stirring frequently.
  • 2
    Reduce heat to medium. Cook 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  • 3
    Cool at room temperature 30 minutes, then refrigerate at least 2 hours. Chutney will thicken more as it cools. Store in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

  • This tart chutney goes well with any cooked meat. If you'd rather prefer it on the sweeter side, increase the sugar to 1 1/2 cups.
  • Golden raisins come from the same grape as regular raisins. The golden version, though, is treated with sulphur dioxide, to prevent darkening, and then dried with artificial heat. The result: A plumper, moister raisin that's pale gold in color.
