Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

    This spiced fruit chutney can be made several days ahead. Be sure to keep it covered in the refrigerator.

    Make extra chutney, package it in a pretty jar and give it as a hostess gift. It is delicious served with turkey or ham.
  • tip 3
    Toasting nuts brings out the subtle flavor of nuts and also makes them more crunchy.
