Cranberry Chutney

I like to make this for Christmas parties. You can make this up and refrigerate overnight.

Some cranberry chutney recipes have tons of steps. But this one couldn't be easier and is incredibly delicious. It has a mix of tart cranberries, sweet apples, and rich dried figs that make a beautiful fruit combination. Tossed with a little brown sugar and spices, every bite has the flavors of the holidays. Serve alongside turkey, pour over cream cheese for a holiday appetizer or put it in a jar and give as a hostess gift. There are tons of ways to enjoy this delicious chutney. The Test Kitchen
