I didn't end up with enough because the large group of friends who came over when I served the first jar hinted strongly, VERY STRONGLY that they'd love to have some too. The recipe is simple (compared to other chutneys I've made) and yummy. . .

I love homemade cranberry sauce and all the extra dried fruit in this version made this recipe a great one. I could just eat it by the spoonful. Definately making it again!
