Loved this recipe! Everyone who has tried it loved it too! I made it for a gathering of 16 and another of 21 all the women wanted the recipe. Big hit. The only thing I changed was the amount of clove I only used 1/4 tsp. Read More

This chutney has a deep spicy almost exotic flavor unlike the bright fruity tart taste of traditional cranberry sauce. It's a nice change but the amount of cinnamon and spices even though I like the flavor felt like it left a coating on my tongue and tasted overcooked. My cranberries cooked in about 12 minutes and next time I make this I will cut back at least the cinnamon to 1.5 teaspoons (to start) and add the spices when I add the apples. I could see adding orange zest to this too. (recipe made for RECIPE GROUP ). Read More

I zested 1/2 of a lemond the added the juice. Had some store bought lemonade so added a cup of that instead of water. reversed the allspice and clove just because it looked wrong. I also cut back on both of the sugars because of the sweet lemonade. This came out so good I used it on turkey , peanutbutter and bread, hell it was so good I took off my shirt and rubbed it on my body. Read More

I added orange zest and juice of one orange. After the chutney had cooked I lightly smashed the apples with a potato masher. A better presentation in my estimation! Read More

This recipe is so close to one that I have made for years (and my mother before that) that I am sure it must have originated from the same source. My recipe adds 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 c chopped celery and cuts back the cloves to 1/2 tsp. It calls for one pound of cranberries instead of a certain number of cups. I'm sure these changes are just personal preference somewhere along the line! I make this every year for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Would make it more often if people wouldn't look at me funny trying to find fresh cranberries! Read More

I love this recipe. To add a little more zing as if you needed it line your bowl with cream cheese. I use my black bowl and there is the black white and red in the center visual. It is beautiful and tasty! It's great to spread on crackers! Read More
