Sweet, Sour, Spicy: Cranberry-Juniper Chutney

Unique evergreen/earthy flavor

Cranberry chutney, turkey, cream cheese tea sandwich, yum! When I saw fresh cranberries for cheap at yesterday’s farmers market, I became super happy. Not taking cranberry too far from home, I decided to make a traditional chutney with a surprise, juniper berries. I was introduced to juniper berries at a spice shop several weeks ago. While reading the label and then giving them a sniff, I learned that they are what flavors gin! Cool! They should be good in meat sauces and marmalades.

For the traditional chutney base, I used the recipe below. I added a few juniper berries to the spice mix.
