This sauce is a little on the tart side. If you prefer it sweeter, add more sugar to taste. Serve it as a condiment with roasted turkey or pork.

If you like chutney, you'll love this recipe. I especially enjoy putting this sauce on my turkey sandwich, along with left-over stuffing. It really gives the sandwich extra zing!

This is now a staple for my family's Thanksgiving meal! Everyone loved it except one niece...she puckered her mouth up something fierce, because she was expecting a more traditional sweet cranberry sauce. Thank you Martha and friends for adding to our holiday traditions... Ellen G in Oklahoma City
