These days, cranberries are fresh and in every store and market, so it was appropriate to make something for the Holidays.  I love chutney with chicken, turkey, pork and my new favorite is with cheese.  This easy recipe is tart but with a little hint of heat.  You can add or subtract any of the ingredients to make it suit your taste.

I choose to test my chutney recipe with a wonderful local cheese, Chèvre Camembert, from the
 Goat Lady Dairy.  It was an awesome match!

Chutney is great with chicken, turkey, pork, or even cheese. This easy recipe is tart but with a little hint of heat.
