Ginger-Cranberry Chutney Spread Recipe

Publisher Photo
"I first became acquainted with chutney while I was serving overseas," writes LaVonne Wettering of Clermont, Florida. "I prefer a tart, rather than a sweet, taste—and that's just what the ginger, apple juice and lemon juice bring to the ruby-red spread. I usually serve it with cream cheese and crackers, but it's wonderful with turkey slices and pork chops, too."
