Method

Cranberry Pear Chutney: In small saucepan, toast mustard and cumin seeds over medium-low heat until mustard seeds just begin to pop, about 5 minutes. Add cranberries, pears, onion, sugar, vinegar, ginger, cloves, cayenne, salt and 1/4 cup (60 mL) water.

Bring to simmer; reduce heat and simmer, covered and stirring occasionally, until mixture is thick and jam-like, about 40 minutes. Let cool.
