This super easy recipe is a wonderful twist on the Thanksgiving favorite cranberry sauce ~ Cranberry Orange Chutney with Crystallized Ginger. I’ve slightly adapted this recipe from one I found on Epicurious and this year we’re going to use this lovely chutney in Cranberry Orange & Ginger Chutney Brie Tarts, a recipe by the Authentic Suburban Gourmet. I can hardly wait!!
I’ll admit that I’m not a huge cranberry sauce fan. Growing up, Mom and Sarah gave it equal status to stuffing. I didn’t get it. I’ve come to appreciate cranberries and the nuance that their sweet-tart flavor adds to a meal or sandwich or cocktail.
