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.

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*).

way to much clove

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!

I made this for Recipe Group. I cut the recipe in half but still used a whole apple. Because I mis-read the directions, I added the apple in at the beginning rather than the end of the cooking process. It still turned out great! We enjoyed the contrast of flavors; sweet, tart and spicy. I made it the day before Thanksgiving and enjoyed the flavor more after it sat in the fridge overnight. Visually, it was a very pretty addition to our Thanksgiving table.

I used white grape juice in place of water. this is the best ive ever had. Im using it for jam because it thickened beautifully.

I will never use canned cranberry sauce again! Great recipe, easy and delicious. I adjusted the seasoning amounts as advised by other reviewers. I added orange juice and zest. Left out the cloves, because I didn't have any. I cooked the sauce about 12 minutes before adding the apple. Then another 5-8 minutes with the apple. I ate it with chicken salad for lunch. Keeper recipe!!!!!

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!
