So I thought I'd share the recipe and attempt recipe writing for the first time. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.
Cranberry Orange Chutney
1 1/4 cups apple juice or apple cider
1/4 cup orange juice (fresh or not, doesn't matter)
1 cup granulated sugar (more or less to taste, we like it kind of sweet)
2 bags (about 4 cups or 1 lb) cranberries (you can use fresh or frozen)
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1-2 tsp fresh orange zest
Put the apple and orange juice in a saucepan with the sugar, heat on medium-low heat stirring occasionally until sugar is completely dissolved.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir over medium-low heat until the cranberries collapse, about 15 minutes. Turn heat to low and let the sauce thicken, about 5-10 minutes. Taste to see if it needs more orange juice, spices or sugar. Remove from heat and once it has cooled some put in a bowl or shallow dish loosely covered in the refrigerator. Let cool and it will thicken up.
