You can serve this chunky chutney over cream cheese or Brie with crackers, or as a condiment with roast pork or poultry. Either way, its slightly tart flavor and deep red hue lend a festive flair to the table. —Karyn Gordon, Rockledge, Florida
This applesauce spiced with cinnamon and ginger, is a nice complement to any entree. While searching on the Internet for bread recipe, I happened upon one that used cranberries and apples. I adapted some of the ingredients and created this sweet-tart applesauce.—Sondra Ostheimer, Boscobel, Wisconsin
My family prefers traditional dishes at Christmas parties, but I usually like to add in a few of my own creations. With some chipotle powder, brown sugar and a cinnamon stick, this cranberry sauce is flavorful enough to earn a permanent spot in the holiday lineup.
