Every sauce I make has a story...and the story behind Marina's Cranberry Chutney goes way back to my catering days in New Jersey. When I catered Gourmet magazine was all the rage. It was the go-to magazine for culinary excellence. One issue was on Indian Chutneys and the Cranberry Chutney was the one that sounded so great. Thanksgiving was coming up and I wanted to give my customers a homemade Cranberry Sauce so my Chef and I thought why not a Cranberry Chutney. It became one of my best selling items for charcuterie platters and of course as a side for Turkey or Ham! So Yummy!
If you know anything about Chutney it can be very spicey and the original recipe was very spicey. So Barbara and I went into the kitchen and experimented on a Cranberry Chutney that would palatable for my customers. After a couple of tries of tweaking the spices and heat, we came up with a delicious recipe.
When I moved to Missouri I tried to find a job but to no avail. We were raising our hogs for market Big John said: "why not make your Tomato Sauce, Barbecue Sauce and Cranberry Chutney to sell?" What a great idea!! So I dug out my handwritten recipe for Cranberry Chutney and adapted it to large batches. I took the Safe Handling course and looked into renting space in a Commercial Kitchen, got my labels approved by the FDA and I was up and running. Looking back it was a great idea.
So fast forward to 2020. Many kettles later Cranberry Chutney is still going strong and it is so delicious.
Here are a few reasons to eat Cranberries....not just because they are good for you...but they are so versatile and delicious!!
Over the years I have used Marina's Cranberry Chutney in so many recipes. Here are a few of my favorite:
