Chutneys combine vinegar and sugar for a balance of sweet and sour flavor. This one not only eliminates the sugar, but adds a touch of heat from red pepper flakes, along with a lovely hint of orange. Make another batch or use leftover chutney as a flavorful spread for cold turkey sandwiches.
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 large shallot, finely chopped (1/3 cup)
1 12-ounce package fresh cranberries
1/2 cup Splenda Granular
1/2 cup regular or light orange juice
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Scant 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon orange zest
1. In a large saucepan, heat the oil and saut shallot for 3 to 4 minutes or until softened.
