¼ teaspoon – Ground allspice

1 cup – Water

1 cup – Yellow onion, 1/4-inch dice

2 cups – Apple (any variety), peeled, 1/4-inch dice

1 cup  – Celery, 1/4-inch dice

1.  Place all ingredients in a 4-quart saucepotover medium heat and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for one hour, stirring frequently. Cranberryskins will pop. Be very careful not to cook on too high of a temperature; thischutney burns easily if left unattended.

2. Cool and store in a container in refrigerator for 3 to 4 months. Or portion into smaller containers and freeze for up to 6 months.

Serve with chicken or turkey. Or use as an appetizer over a block of cream cheese, served with crackers.
