Mom’s Raisin-Cranberry Chutney

Mom’s Raisin-Cranberry Chutney (Paleofied) 


This time of year is the best, with the crispness of the air, the changing of the foliage, (or at least what I see posted by my friends who live somewhere other than Southern California ;)), the pumpkin spice everything, and the feeling that the holidays are right around the corner.


I cook a lot, which you know if you follow us on Instagram @modafoods. Anyway, it is one of my favorite things, and I have an original recipe to share with you. I found it in my mom’s stuff recently. It brought back a lot of holiday memories. I adapted it to fit our way of eating. It is delicious! It should be refrigerated for a month before eating, but I had to give it a little taste test. 


We are big fans of cranberry sauce, but this is something special. The smell was heavenly when it was simmering. I am so excited for Thanksgiving. I hope you love it as much as I did as a child.
