This chutney is quite tart and goes great with roast turkey. Once it's made, it needs a 3 hour chill time before serving so plan ahead. Recipe is from the Chicago Tribune

This was fantastic. I brought it to a Thanksgiving potluck, and will definately make it again. I used the leftovers in hot cereal, on toast, and with vanilla ice cream. I really like the combination of the bitterness of the cranberries with the garlic tang, and then the clean sweetness of the asian pear. FANTASTIC!
