1Peel and core pineapple. Cut pineapple into 1-inch chunks to make 5 cups. (If using purchased pineapple chunks, cut large pieces into 1-inch chunks.) Cut plums in half and remove pits; cut each half into 3 pieces. (If using canned plums, cut each into 6 pieces.)
2In 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven, heat onion, chile, gingerroot, garlic, vinegar and water to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 5 minutes.
3Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, curry powder, salt, red pepper and orange peel to combine. Add pineapple, plums and dried cranberries. Increase heat to high and heat to boiling.
