Cranberry Chutney for our Holiday Trip

If you don’t know, I have a very sweet spot in my heart for my Airstream travel trailer.  I have only had her for a little over one year and I am absolutely smitten.  When my family and I are not vacationing with her, I am at home thinking about our next trip.  Really.  Where will we go?  What will I cook?  I can not wait!

That being said, we celebrated our Thanksgiving holiday, in our Airstream on a chilly beach in the San Juan Islands here in Washington State.  You can read about our trip here.  I wanted our trip to be easy.  Simple.  Enjoyable.  I didn’t want to make a big fuss over our Thanksgiving dinner.  I would roast a turkey, buy a nice big block of sweet sharp cheese and some fresh bread and that would be it.  Of course you need cranberries to go right?  I prepared them at home before our trip so they would set up nicely.  That’s the beauty of my simple cranberry sauce.

Beautiful fresh cranberries and dried mission figs

Cranberry Chutney

1 bag (12 ounces) cranberries
1 package (8 ounces) dried figs of your choice, roughly chopped
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup water
1 cinnamon stick
A splash of red wine vinegar
Pinch of salt
In a medium sized saucepan, place all of your ingredients together and bring to a boil.  The cranberries will pop, thicken and everything will turn into a beautiful thick, sweet red sauce.  Let cool and store in the fridge if not using straight away.
Bon appetit!
