Cranberry Apricot Chutney

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by JanetB-KY

Not a true chutney in that there are no onions or truly savory ingredients in this, but it is a delicious sauce with any sort of poultry. It has a sweet yet tangy taste, plus a bit of chewiness because of the apricots. This came originally from the better homes and gardens recipe site

I make this every Thanksgiving as the cranberry sauce. If you do, consider doubling the recipe. It's wonderful!! Everyone raves and it is so very easy to make. Don't ever make "canberry" sauce again. (I don't use the crushed red pepper and I typically add a bit less ginger than called for.)
