Christmas Chutney Video Transcript

Hi, I’m Chef Ted, and I’m here at the Rada Cutlery kitchen. Today I’m going to be making a Christmas Chutney.

After you start cutting up your fruit, the oxygen in the air starts to affect it, and it starts turning brown. You can use any type of lemon or lime juice. Sometimes those aren’t available. Sometimes they add more of a tart flavor than you really want. So the alternative to that is using a little bit of Mountain Dew. There’s about as much citric acid in a Mountain Dew as there is in a lemon or a lime. Just toss it in there. It doesn’t add the tartness and after you drain it off it leaves no flavor to it and keeps your fruit from turning brown.

Now I’m going to fine dice a large sweet onion. Just going to start putting the onion in a large sauté pan. Now I’m going to add the apples, draining off some of the Mountain Dew. Then I’m going to add 9 ounces of dried cranberries, which kind of kicks that into festive Christmas spirit. I’m going to add 16 ounces of apple cider vinegar. Then I’m going to add a cup of sugar to start with and we might have to adjust that seasoning in a little bit. I’m adding a little over a teaspoon of curry powder. You can also use turmeric if you have it. Remember, that stuff will stain substantially if you get it on you.

And the same amount of coriander. Then I’m going to add the same amount of cumin, then the same amount of ginger. And we’re going to add a couple teaspoons of salt. And now we’re going to go to the stove.

We’re going to start it off at medium-high heat to bring it up, stirring occasionally. Once we get it to a pretty fast moving simmer I will back it off a little bit and let it cook for 45 minutes.

It looks like the chutney is cooked down pretty well so we’re going to bring it over here. This is made to be a Christmas chutney where you’d can it in small cans, cool it down, and give it as gifts. It’s usually served with ham or lamb, beef, chicken, and there you have Christmas Chutney!
