Cranberry Orange Cardamom Chutney

Christmas in a Jar

This decadent cranberry chutney is the perfect concoction of sweet and tart cranberry sauce with aromatic floral hints of cardamom spice and orange. It's a wonderful condiment that you can enjoy all-year-round and not just during the holiday seasons. It beautifully compliments roasted-caramelized root veggies such as rainbow carrots, fennel, golden beets, parsnips, celery root and Delicata squash!

You can also enjoy it with yogurt and granola, gelato, waffles, crepes, scone, toast with shaved vegan white chocolate, as filling for mini tartlets with crushed salted pistachios, as appetizer with vegan goat cheese crostinis and fresh thyme leaves, in vegan grilled cheese sandwich, sweet & savory gin cocktail and much more, just use your culinary imagination and have fun with it!
