  • 3 cups peeled and chopped apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Pinch of salt


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the chopped apples, cranberries, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, water, grated ginger, cinnamon, ground cloves, and a pinch of salt.
  • Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 20-25 minutes or until the fruits soften and the mixture thickens.
  • As it simmers, use a spoon to occasionally mash some of the fruit against the side of the pan to achieve your desired consistency.
  • Once thickened to your liking, remove the chutney from the heat and let it cool. It will continue to thicken as it cools down.
  • Transfer the Apple-Cranberry Chutney to a clean jar or airtight container. Refrigerate once completely cooled.
