1 piece fresh ginger -- (1 inch) peeled
1 whole lime
1 cup golden raisins
6 ounces fresh cranberries (1/2 of a 12-ounce bag)
1 cup flaked -- sweetened coconut
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 whole serrano chile seeded and minced
1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro

Preparation / Directions:

1. Cut the ginger and lime into 1/2 inch chunks. With the food processor running, drop the ginger and lime chunks through the feed tube and process until finely chopped. 2. Add the raisins and cranberries and process until coarsely chopped. Add the coconut and pulse until just mixed. 3. Remove half the mixture and set aside. Process the remaining mixture until it forms a thick paste. 4. In a saucepan, simmer the paste-like mixture with the water and sugar. Stir to blend the ingredients and cook until the liquid thickens and reduces to about half. Turn off the heat. 5. While the sauce cooks, chop the cilantro in the food processor. 6. Stir the remaining uncooked cranberry mixture, cilantro and the chile, if using, into the cooked cranberry mixture. (If the mixture seems too thick, add a spoonful of hot water.) Serve at room temperature. (Can be made a day ahead and refrigerated). Notes: Capture the flavors of coastal India with fresh lime and coconut in this sweet-tart red and green chutney. A chutney with crunch appeal. For the best flavor and texture, cook half the mixture and stir it together with the uncooked half. Use a mini-chopper or food processor to make this recipe a breeze.
