Cherry Relish (Chutney)
I offer this recipe for all those who still 'pooh-pooh' cranberry relish (which I happen to love). This is an excellent relish.
20 oz Pitted cherries with juice
1/2 c Raisins
1/2 c Honey
1/4 c Cider vinegar
1/4 c Brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
1/8 ts Ground cloves
1/2 c Pecans, chopped, coarsely
1 tb Cornstarch
1 tb Cold water
1.In a medium saucepan, combine cherries, raisins, honey vinegar, sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Cook slowly, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Stir in the pecans.
2.Combine the cornstarch and cold water, blending well, and gradually stir into the cherry mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
Be determined to live life with flair and laughter!
