Cranberry chutney is a wonderful seasonal condiment that goes beyond the turkey. We also use on our Stuffed Turkey Burgers, with cheeses, and more.
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup water
4 cups fresh cranberries
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
grated zest of 1 small orange or tangerine
1. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan, bring to a boil and add the rest of the ingredients.
2. Turn the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes or until thick.
3. Cool before serving.
Jim says this is based on the Rosy Deacon, a classic cocktail from the Stan Jones’ Complete Bar Guide. Upon sampling it, a friend suggested he “round it out” which is when the absinthe came in. As he puts it, “The Green Fairy did the rest.”
Inspired by Thai street dish "Som Tam," we use ripe papaya (easier to find stateside) instead of the raw green papaya found in the Thai version and skip the dried shrimp. This is ubiquitous on the city streets, usually served with a side of sticky rice.
