We loved this. A great change-of-pace way of preparing brats! The Cranberry Chutney really compliments the brats. I will be making this again, for sure. Thanks for sharing it, Viclynn.

I have my own way of cooking brats, but I did make the Cranberry/Pickle Chutney. It's "different", I'll give it that!
