Recipe: Cranberry/Jalapeno/Ginger Chutney

Recipe for Cranberry/Jalapeno/Ginger Chutney (from my Aunt Louise)

1 Big Bag of Cranberries (Costco size) or 3 reg size Bags
Maple Syrup (to taste - I use about a whole 12 oz. bottle)
Juice & Zest from three Oranges
Zest from one lemon
Crystalized Ginger (8 oz) - Chopped fine
Grated Fresh Ginger (about 2 Tbsp)

Put Cranberries in a heavy bottom Stock Pot & cover with water (the kind you like to drink!)
Bring to a boil
Add the rest of the ingredients & bring back to a boil

Adjust the Maple Syrup to taste, it should be tart, but sweet enough to enjoy.
It will thicken & develop a candied look right as it's getting done. Watch for it, then:
Add about 3-5 (chopped med/fine) Jalapenos to Serranos (check for heat before you go crazy!

Stir them in & let cool. Stores for 2-3 months in fridge, or you can 'can' to preserve in your pantry...Enjoy

My fav in on leftover Turkey & Stuffing Sandwiches! AMAZAZING!

Me? Well....I have a day job selling travel to beautiful far away lands, and I love to travel - my job sort of supports & feeds the 'travel monster' inside me. But my other inner monster is: food in all it's facets. I have a 13 yr old DS from a previous life, and married the lovely JoeBacon a three years ago! I finally became a home-owner at that point, we did a huge addition/re-model right away to make the house a bit bigger & I got a wonderful new kitchen out of the deal! I've gone thru Culinary School twice (mostly for fun) 'cuz I love to cook! And thru reading/doing the Maker's Diet 2 years ago, became aware of Sally Fallon, Weston Price, etc...and now after about 9 months of exploring their world, I'm trying to really make it all part of mine. I've had some things turn out great & others have been miserable failures, but I'm learning a LOT (mostly from my fellow NT Bloggers)!! Now I'm enjoying my yard, garden, sprouting, baking bread, brewing Kombucha, using raw milk, making Kefir & Yogurt & just trying to find small ways to make yummy food better for us.
