A chunky chutney like this one makes a great gift for friends and neighbors. I give them the chutney in a decorated jar with a package of cream cheese and a box of crackers. It makes a lovely snack and is just as good alongside a main dish. —Cheryl Lottman Stillwater, Minnesota

"I've been making this for Thanksgiving for years and even people who don't like cranberries like this. You can have leftovers on I've cream, over cream cheese or goat cheese, over cheesecake or pumpkin pie . Have for breakfast with yogurt & granola or just eat with a spoon. It's really easy to make in advance too. I can't rave about this enough.

One note, I decrease the sugar to about 3/4 cup but we like it a little tart. Maybe try 1 cup first and you may decide to take it down a little more."

"This was a delightful recipe. I served this chutney with Cinnamon Graham crackers, spreadable cream cheese and a nice dollop of chutney. Everyone even the children that normally do NOT like cranberries thought this was awesome!

This recipe was a hit for our Thanksgiving dinner and has been reiterated for me to bring over for our Christmas party :)"
