Expert Tips

Using canned whole cranberry sauce instead of fresh cranberries considerably speeds up cooking.

In a hurry? Thickly spread cream cheese onto a pretty serving plate, spoon the chutney over it and arrange the crackers around it.

Try this tasty chutney with roast chicken, turkey or pork; it's also nice inside meat and poultry sandwiches.
