Fruity Cranberry Chutney Recipe

An enticing blend of fruits and spices comes alive in this versatile chutney recipe from field editor Pat Stevens of Granbury, Texas. “It complements turkey and ham nicely,” she says. “We also enjoy it as an appetizer, spooned over cream cheese and served with crackers.”
