It is inspired by a Christmas classic that we have prepared this delicious cranberry chutney.
The color and texture remind us the of cranberry sauce from our childhood but the addition of exotic flavors (curry and chili) will flavor and spice up your pies and roasts of the  holiday season.
The tart cranberries, sweet maple syrup and hot spices blend perfectly to produce an ideal condiment on a festive table.

We also recommend this chutney to accompany your eggs-rolls, sandwiches and cold poultry or pork.

NOTE: You can adjust the dose of chile (the recommended quantity create a very spicy chutney).
