I decided to work on a twist to one of the recipe in The Canning Kitchen cookbook since I love the flavor pairing of apple and cranberry. The recipe is a chutney and it turned out amazing. For those of you that don't know the difference between a chutney and a jam most chutney's will have savory ingredients in the recipe like onions and garlic. Most all chutney's are made with some type of vinegar to increase the acidity.
Spiced Apple Cranberry Chutney
2 lb sweet apples (fuji, honey crisp, gala)
1 1/2 lb sweet yellow onion, diced small
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup dried cranberries
1 1/2 t. salt
1 t. ground cumin
1 t. ground coriander
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1/2 t. cinnamon
3 cups cider vinegar
