"This is simply delicious. It makes a lot and I thought we would have trouble with too much left over. Not so, it is good atop plain yogurt for a dessert, it is good on top of oatmeal, it is just good to eat. Love, Love, Love."

"My first time to make chutney, and this recipe didn't dissapoint. The cranberry, apple, raisins and onion really went well together and it tasted incredible! It tastes awesome over pork roast and it froze very well too. Will be making this again next year for SURE!"

"This was the 1st time I've made this recipe. I'm not a big raisin fan so replaced the raisins with chopped pineapple. It was awesome! I actually made 2 different recipes and, although they were both good, we liked this one best."
