Garlicky Cranberry Chutney

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

I think this came from the L.A. Times. It makes a nice change from the traditional cranberry-orange relish. Though this is called a chutney, I've characterized it as 'Western U.S.' cuisine rather than Indian. It strikes me as sort of 'West-Coast Fusion', in the spirit of ringing all kinds of changes on the traditional American holiday foods. Also, I don't think cranberries are very typical of the subcontinent. But it would probably be fun to serve it with a chicken or turkey curry.

I've made this before and love the zing it brings to cranberry sauce. It's great
