Wisconsin grows an abundance of cranberries and celebrates the harvest with many cranberry festivals. I don't remember where I obtained this recipe, but it's easy, different...and good! Try it with pork or leftover turkey.
The pairing of sweet and tart fruits makes this chutney a wonderful accompaniment for pork. Not only is it a consistent blue-ribbon winner at fairs, it's a natural way to capture the best of autumn's harvest in a jar.
I turn to this recipe frequently because I can prepare it a day aheadit's so convenient when company's coming. And with only a trace of fat, the fruity side dish is nutritious and delicious.Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, New Jersey
The unique flavor of this chutney complements turkey, pork and duck. At holiday time, I make a big batch so I have some to serve, some to share and some to freeze. To make a quick appetizer, blend up 1-1/2 cups, pour over cream cheese and serve with crackers.
While this cranberry sauce is simmering, the wonderful fragrance of the spices brings back happy memories of when my mother made it for the holidays. My husband and three sons are glad I’m carrying on her tradition!
