I used this recipe as an appetizer. I poured it over cream cheese and served ot with wheat crackers. It was a big hit, and the flavor got better with age.

I used the peel of one whole orange chopped, I used a navel orange, and it was so bitter the sauce wasn't even edible. Then I made a second batch without the orange and combined it and it was still horrible, I think a much smaller portion of perhaps just a tablespoon or 2 of fresh grated orange peel would have been better. I ended up serving it at my family Thanksgiving dinner with 16 people, total flop, no one liked it.

This recipie is fabulous. My kids loved it!!! I used less sugar about 1 1/2 cups I could not believe how good it is I used pineapple rum instead of orange liqueour. Soooo good! this is the perfect recipe to begin. It is something that I can easily add to or change as needed. Thanks.

Shouldn't it be orange zest instead of orange peel? Especially with navel oranges, since they have really thick peels. I can't even imagine how awful an entire orange peel could make ANY recipe. I will try this; it sounds good.

Easy to make. Very tasty not too sweet. I did not add any orange peel or zest. I used 2/3 cup orange juice and 2/3 cup water for water and orange liqueur. Recipe makes 2 pints. I hope you don't mind I added my photos when cooking your recipe.

I just made some of this chutney III and put it in little mason jars to give out as gifts...I got 6.5 jars (half pint). I just tested it out, and it tastes great! Of course, cranberries are a little tart/bitter, but if it had been on turkey instead of my fork, and hot, it would be great!! I'm excited to try it. 2 tips: Grate the orange peel...I did about 1tbsp, and that's really all I thought it needed. 2. For the orange liquer, I used half of the orange I grated, and a drop of vodka. Great recipe, super easy to make. Thanks!

This was a nice alternative to the normal cranberry sauce. Even my mother enjoyed it and she is not a fan of cranberry sauce.

Very nice recipe. I skipped the alcohol, and substituted 1 cup fresh squeezed oj for the water. Not too sweet, slightly tart.
