This is a delicious chutney with the sweet and savory flavor that I love so much. Loved the sweetness of the berries and the nice warm bite from the spices and the red pepper flakes. I squeezed a tiny bit of tangerine juice from a freshly picked tangerine (from my neighbor's tree with permission :) This chutney will be great with turkey dinner and with those awesome turkey sandwiches that I long for after all the excitement of the holiday is gone. Made for PRMR, November, 2013.
June 2011 I made a double batch of this with mangos instead of pears and it was quite fine.
I also liked the combination of spices in this using only half of the Cardamom as I'm still not sure about that spice. I thought there was a little too much vinegar in this but I did double the recipe for my family at TG tomorrow so not sure if that had anything to do with it. It presents very well. Thanks for sharing. Made for PRMR
Absolutely loved this chutney, & it's times like this that I'm happy to have stashed away in my freezer so many bags of those tart, red berries last winter! We really enjoy homemade chutneys, & this one so very flavorful! Will be making this again, & have plans to include it in my gift-food bags during the next run of winter holidays! Thanks so much for a great keeper of a recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
This was more similar to cranberry sauce than chutney, I thought. I really enjoyed the spices that were chosen. I used 4 small pears and 1/2 of a large onion, 2 cloves of garlic, and doubled everything else (except red pepper and cranberries). It made 3 pint size jars of chutney. It is very good with pork and turkey. Haven't tried it with chicken yet, but I can imagine it'll be delicious as well!
This is fabulous. Please pay better attention to the cooking times than I did - my cranberries were overcooked & my pears undercooked. Excellent flavor & very easy to make. I did use only the initial 3/4c sugar & it was just right imo. Thanks!
