Kenya would eat an entire jar of homemade cranberry sauce on its own if given the chance — he actually tried to do it once last year when I wasn’t looking. I didn’t have to worry about him getting his share of antioxidants for a while because he basically got a month’s worth in that one sitting.

When I was growing up, my mother always used to make a cranberry dish for Thanksgiving. This is my twist on her recipe which includes bite-sized pieces of celery, apple and onions.

With grated apple to give extra texture and a whole cinnamon stick for added flavor, my little guy has had sights on this new cranberry creation from the moment I started working on it. I am happy to report that Kenya would happily eat this Cranberry Apple Chutney all on its own with relish (get it? Chutney? With relish?), but with all the turkey testing I’ve been doing recently, he’s been enjoying it the way I intended_ alongside a nice slice of turkey.

  1. After Thanksgiving a local grocery store was clearing out their cranberries for 50 cents a bag. I bought 2 bags and made this recipe (3/4 c. sugar was sweet enough for us) with one and froze the other. My husband and I LOVE this sauce served with salmon. I just took out the frozen cranberries and made another batch. If I had realized how delicious and easy this was, I would have bought more cranberries!
