Spiced Cranberry Date Strawberry Chutney Recipe

This recipe is perfect for the holidays or any time of year you are craving sweet, tangy, spicy.  It makes a great chutney or spread for bread or toast. Cranberries are famous for their support of a healthy urinary tract, but, like most berries they're also high in antioxidants making them great for anti-ama (waste accumulation), anti-aging, cancer prevention and heart health.


  • 1 cup cranberries (fresh when possible, if not, soak frozen in hot water and strain once melted)

  • 1 cup chopped pitted dates (best to soak them over night in 1 cup water and retain water to use in this recipe)

  • 1/2 cup strawberry chunks, or blueberries or raspberries

  • ¼ c jaggery as needed per taste – this should be sweet and tangy to your liking

  • 1 cup water (unless you soaked dates, then use the water you used there)

  • 3 cloves

  • 1 star anise (whole if you have it) – this is as much for decoration as it is for flavor and digestion enhancement

  • 3 pinches cardamom

  • 3 pinches nutmeg

  • 1-2 thread saffron

  • 2 Tbs fresh chopped ginger


  • Bring all ingredients to a boil

  • Cover

  • Simmer 10-15 minutes until cranberries as mushed and it has thickened

  • Optional: You can mush with potato masher until desired consistency – chunky can be funnnn

  • Stir occasionally

  • Adjust taste as needed

  • To make it a little more savory: you can add in ½ tsp toasted & crushed cumin seeds and 1/8 tsp crushed black pepper

  • To keep it sweeter: Garnish with squeeze of orange juice and stir to incorporate, and add more sweetener as you go along
