Chutney is one of those flavors that can single-handedly liven up a meal. This colorful chutney pairs just as beautifully with the rich flavors of roasted turkey as it does with sweet potatoes or vegetables. It is also delicious as a glaze; just puree, dilute slightly with water and brush on the poultry before roasting. And hey, for a great appetizer idea, dollop a spoonful on a block of cream cheese and surround with your favorite crackers. YUM!
