Cranberry and Apple Chutney



1 tablespoon canola oil

1 medium sweet onion

1 small shallot, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)

3 cups fresh cranberries

1 pound Granny Smith apples (about 2 medium), peeled, cored, and cut into small cubes

1 pound Golden Delicious apples (about 2 medium), peeled, cored, and cut into small cubes

¾ cup brown sugar

½ cup chopped dried figs

1 ½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan set over medium-high heat. Add onion and shallots and cook until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in cranberries, apples, brown sugar, figs, and vinegar. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture begins to boil and moisture is released, about 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, occasionally stirring, until apples are tender. Cool to room temperature before serving.
