Preparations for Thanksgiving dinner have begun!  In the spirit of trying to get as much done ahead of time as possible, Cranberry Chutney is at the top of the list. I usually double or treble the recipe, and then we have enough for Christmas, too. It keeps for several months in the fridge. The recipe was generously shared with us by Cynthia Hancock, the mother of one of my daughter’s school friends.

A tangy, slightly spicy cranberry sauce. Every guest always asks for the recipe.
