Julie’s Cranberry Chutney
This easy and delicious recipe for cranberry chutney is a great alternative to cranberry sauce. It’s healthier than traditional cranberry sauce - with more fruit and vegetables, and half the sugar. The finished product has a great sweet-tangy flavor, and makes a great side dish to serve with roasted turkey, chicken, or pork. Or, for something different, try serving it with low-fat yogurt! ~Julie, CNPP Nutritionist
