Expert Tips

(Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)

Dried peaches or dried apples can be used instead of the apricots. When using dried apples, you may want to try dark raisins or dried cranberries instead of golden raisins.

Spoon chutney over a softened block of cream cheese or round of Brie for a quick appetizer, and sprinkle with chopped nuts and green onions. Serve with crackers.
