Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

    This spiced fruit chutney can be made several days ahead. Be sure to keep it covered in the refrigerator.

    Make extra chutney, package it in a pretty jar and give it as a hostess gift. It is delicious served with turkey or ham.
  • tip 3
    Toasting nuts brings out the subtle flavor of nuts and also makes them more crunchy.
