I love surprising recipes like this chutney with rhubarb, apple and cherries. Try it with cream cheese and crackers or as a condiment for grilled chicken. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

  1. In a 6-qt. stockpot, combine all ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 25-30 minutes or until mixture has thickened.
