This is an awesome and interesting way of doing cranberries for turkey dinners. It is also very good on a turkey sandwich. This is my favorite way to do cranberries. Hope you enjoy it!

This was so delicious - everybody loved it. It makes a big pot so be prepared to freeze the leftovers. I added 1 t. of powdered ginger could probably have added even more. I also felt like I could have even used a whole onion. Read More

i didn't much care for the taste or texture of the chutney. I tried to add less sugar just to be healthier but it's impossible due to the pungent vinegar flavor. I was making dinner for 5 so I thought the "6" yield would be fine but it was waaaay too much. If you try the recipe I would suggest halving it. Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving dinner and it was wonderful!! I made a few very minor adjustments... I increased the sugar to 1 cup (it seemed too tart with 3/4 cup but I'm sure tartness varies depending on the ripeness of the cranberries). I also added 1/2 tsp of orange zest. I used a 2qt saucepan and ended up not having enough room for all of the apple (granny smiths) and pear pieces. It was great with the amount used. Next time I will only use one apple and one pear. This will be a standard Turkey Day Dish in our house from now on! Excellent recipe - thanks for sharing it!! Read More

I loved this recipe and it was so easy to make. My husband even liked it and added it to his pork chops. I didn't have any pears so I just used more apples. Read More

My aunt made this for Thanksgiving and it was fabulous!!! She said she only makes easy dishes and I don't think she changed anything. Everyone raved about it so I'm pretty sure it will become a regular Thanksgiving side. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Personally I do not like cranberries but I was charged with making the cranberry side for Christmas and I thought this sounded interesting. I am giving this five stars because my family just fell all over themselves for the recipe and thought it was the best! Read More

This is really good. I added about 1/4 tsp. of cloves and nutmeg. Cooked it about 1/2 to 45 min. longer then stated. Served with my chesse and sausage platter for Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing. Read More

Tried something new for the Company potluck. What better place to try a new recipe. There was some left so I am not sure if there was a big push to get another scoop of this. It tasted fine unusual by itself but I have never had chutney. Did like to lix it up with everything on the plate. Might make it again but there are other cranberry recipes to explore. Read More
