Cranberry-Tangerine Chutney

Laura: I am wild about the bright flavors of this chutney. I am crazy about cranberries anyway (I wish I had a lipstick that color!), but with the honey, tangerines and dash of vinegar, this condiment is the perfect foil to the toasty spices in the turkey. Hey Den, you know I like my aigre-doux sauces. I love the sweet and sour flavors. This sauce rocks!

Dennis: Yes, you do tend to run a little sweet and sour! Just kidding, you make great sauces and your cranberry dishes always taste as beautiful as they look. I thought all of your lipsticks were cranberry color? They all look the same to me even though they have different names. Great marketing!

3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
Pinch of crushed red chili flakes (optional)
Pinch of kosher salt
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 cups tangerine sections (no cheating with canned mandarin oranges, there is no comparison)

Place all of the ingredients, except the tangerine sections, in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the cranberries begin to pop and become jellied. Remove from the heat while the berries still have some texture and cool.

When the sauce has cooled, stir in the tangerine sections. The sauce can be prepared up to 3 days ahead of serving and can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator.

Lemon and tangerine curd

Tart and not too sweet, this citrus curd is like spoonfuls of sunshine shipped in from a place where your car easily starts in the morning and the tiny hairs in your nose don't freeze the moment you walk outside.

Makes 150ml curd
50ml lemon juice
50ml tangerine or orange juice
50g sugar or 50ml honey
3 large egg yolks
4 tbsp butter, cut into chunks

1 In a small saucepan, combine the lemon and tangerine juices and bring to a boil. Simmer until reduced to about 3 tbsp.

2 Whisk the sugar/honey with the egg yolks until smooth. Stir in the citrus, whisking vigorously as you do so the egg yolks don't scramble. Add an inch or two of water to saucepan, return it to the stove, and place the bowl with the juice-egg-sugar mixture on top of if. Bring the water to a simmer, and cook the curd over it, stirring constantly, until it is thick enough to coat a spoon.

3 Remove from the heat. Whisk in one chunk of butter at a time, whisking vigorously to aerate the curd, until all of the butter is incorporated. For a denser curdinstead of an airy one, stir the butter more gently in one piece at a time without the crazed whisking. Cover and cool in the fridge before serving (keeps for up to a week or frozen for up to a month). Gently rewarm and whisk before serving to get the creamy texture back.

2 tbsp. stone-ground mustard

1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeño, seeded, finely chopped
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, peeled, grated
3 Florida tangerines, peeled, sectioned, chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, chopped
3 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 tsp. fresh sage, finely chopped

  • 1.1 oz creamed coconut
  • 5 tbsp peanut and tamarind chutney
  • 1.5 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1.5 tsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1.1 oz creamed coconut


  • Cuisine: Asian
  • Recipe Type: Starter
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Preparation Time: 20 mins
  • Cooking Time: 10 mins
  • Serves: 4


  1. Heat a non-stick griddle pan. Cut the tofu into ¾” deep, 1” wide rectangles. Pat well with several layers of kitchen roll to take out some of their moisture. I need to oil my griddle pan a little to prevent the tofu sticking (my non-stick coating has completely gone). Place the tofu on the griddle pan and cook until the underside has lovely brown bars on them. Turn and repeat with this side.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dipping sauce. Stir together all the ingredients, adjusting consistency, I like it creamy but not thick. Taste and adjust, lemon juice or coconut to taste.
  3. Once the tofu is done, place straight into the soya sauce (you are not seasoning with anything else so you can allow them to soak in a little).
  4. Place your rice rolls, two at a time in a deep plate of water until just soft. Place them flat on some kitchen roll to dry slightly and place on your work surface. Place 6-7 cucumber shreds in a line in the centre of each, leaving a 1” border at the top and bottom.
  5. Follow with some spring onion and 1 tbs. or so of carrot, then 2-3 mint leaves, 1-2 tangerine pieces and finally the tofu.
  6. Fold in the top and bottom and then one side and roll, keeping it tight, the whole thing so that it is like a spring roll. Cover with some damp kitchen roll as you finish the rest. Serve as they are or halved with the dipping sauce.
