Absolutely the best!! I made it for thanksgiving. I had a fresh orange on hand, so I zested it and added, and it made a difference (I love orange peel), but it would have still be great without it, as another user said. I did cut down the vinegar to 2TBsp as recommended by most. (I doubled the recipe and used 1/4 cup). I was not sure which apples to use, so I asked someone, and they recommended MacIntosh (they break down better)...worked well. Amazing recipe! I loved it! This will be my standard cranberry sauce from now on. Thank you very much!!! Those who did not try it because they dont like cranberries have no idea what they are missing!

I did not care for this recipe. It had a very high vinegar after taste. I know my way around the kitchen and this was just not good at all. I wasted my time and ingredients. :(

This chutney has a wonderful flavor and texture. It goes very well with turkey. However, cut back the cider vinegar to 2 tablespoons. The whole family just loved it. Fun to make too.---Diana G.

Wonderful recipe! Full of taste, definately better than that yucky looking stuff most people use out of the can. I personally don't like cranberry sauce but I continue to eat this one, it has a wonderful flavor (I love the apples) and I love the smell of this when it's cooking. I ended up having to make another batch before dinner because it was gone by the time the bird was done :o).

This one is incredible. I made it, as a change of pace, for Thanksgiving dinner, to have along with the more traditional kind. It went fast. I had to make a second batch to eat with the leftovers, it was so good. I made it the night before, and it was very sharp tasting, when it was fresh, and still warm. I was worried that it would be too tart, but a night in the fridge mellowed it perfectly. Made it a bunch of times since, it's great just to eat off the spoon. Thanks for a new classic recipe in my house, I highly recommend this one. ***THREE YEARS LATER- We still use this as our traditional cranberry sauce on holidays, and throughout the year, and we still LOVE IT!!

I omitted the raisins and cider vinegar but did add just a splash of balsamic vinegar. I also added some roasted, chopped pecans and used this chutney on top of brie wrapped in phyllo dough. It was great!

After reading what others had to say about this recipe, I made some variations to the recipe, all else remaining the same: 3/4 c white sugar, 1/2 c light brown sugar, 2-3 fuji apples, 2 tbsp cider vinegar, omitted the raisins, cooked it for 25-30 min to reach the thick consistency I was looking for, and then gently mashed the apples. I found that if you eat it right after making it while it's still warm, it's a little more tart and "vinegary," but if you refrigerate it over night, it lessens the tartness and vinegar element so it's just right!

My guests thought this was weird and generally left it on their plates, but I personally thought it was great. I think too much vinegar may put some people off. But really, it is a new and exciting twist on the old cranberry treatment. Wow.
