1/4 tsp ground cardamom
2.5 Tbsp (40g) crystalized ginger, thinly chopped or blend with the port
1/2 lemongrass stalk, cut off the lower bulb and remove tough, outer leaves, pound the dried stalks lightly to release their volatile oils

Salt and black ground pepper to taste.

Bring to a boil a cook for about 10 minutes. Add cranberries to pot and return to a boil simmer cranberries until they are popped (do not over cook the cranberries). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Let cool and refrigerate; better a day after. Discard star anise and lemongrass before serving. This cranberry chutney can keep refrigerated for up to 3 weeks.
