I’ve been sharing lots of great holiday recipes the past few weeks hoping to make your holidays a little bit easier. Today I’ve got another slow cooker recipe that is the perfect addition to your holiday meal.
Cranberries are a quintessential part of any holiday feast. That bright red color and refreshing tart flavor is a welcome addition to any table. Many of you are familiar with my Best Ever Cranberry Sauce but another one of my holiday cranberry favorites is this easy cranberry chutney.
I love how the cranberries are able to cut through the heaviness of the rest of the meal. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy – we all need a little something tart and refreshing and this cranberry chutney certainly does the trick.
What Goes In A Cranberry Chutney?
This chutney is bursting with fresh flavors and spices. Cranberries, apples, and pears make up the bulk of this recipe and it is beautifully spiced with cinnamon and cloves.

Made the cranberry chutney today. Absolutely delicious! Looking forward to adding to my table on Christmas Day. Thanks for the great recipe
I have to say, it takes a lot of motivation for me to leave a review on something. This was such an amazing recipe that I just have to voice it out loud, or at least online 🙂 I had never made cranberry chutney from scratch and I decided that’s what I wanted to do for our work thanksgiving lunch this year. Pinteresting away I found this recipe and made it to rave reviews!! The only thing I changed was using coconut sugar instead of white (healthier), and added just a dash of ground cinnamon because I wanted more of the flavor. I put it on low for 8 hours overnight and then unplugged the slow cooker and let it sit and congeal for a couple hours so it was just slightly warm when we ate. Amazing! Great flavor, great consistency! It turned out just as I was hoping and craving. It’s now my new holiday favorite. Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

Best comment of the week Kristin! I’m so glad you gave this a try and I will give the coconut sugar a try next time – yummy!
Not sure you ever clarified if this can be canned? Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks!!
