Well it's getting cold down here in Fl again tonight, so I have my fireplace lit and I can't believe it but my favorite radio station is playing Christmas Carols already, Did I miss Thanksgiving? Ha Ha
oh well I guess I'll go with the flow and start posting some Holiday Recipes. My mom would make Cranberry Orange Chutney this smells so good and she used to do it on top of the stove but it works great in the Microwave as well. This tart and tangy chutney goes well with turkey,chicken,or ham and is quick and easy.
CRANBERRY ORANGE CHUTNEY:
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1 large orange, sectioned
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup golden raisins
2 Tablespoons chopped onion
1 teaspoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
In 1 1/2 quart microwave-safe bowl, combine all ingredients, cover with waxed paper. Microwave on HIGH for 6 1/2 to 9 minutes or until cranberries pop open, stirring twice during cooking. Let stand until thickened and cool. Store in refrigerator. makes 2 cups.
This also makes a pretty hostess gift. just pack into a pretty glass jar.
Well I think I'll put on a pot of chicken soup it's still going to be cold tomorrow
Enjoy the Cranberry Orange Chutney
