I first made this chutney in 2008 for Thanksgiving. It pairs deliciously with both ham and turkey, as well as chicken. Some changes I made to the recipe included: using regular dried cherries (I didn't know where to find sour cherries) and I exchanged naval oranges for the grapefruit - we have some family members who take medication which would contradict with the grapefruit. This recipe is delicious!!! I make it for almost every family-holiday now.
