I love making chutneys, Bengali style chutneys, they are so quick and easy and I feel the cranberry, with its bright and vivid hues was born to be a chutney. As for leftover chutney, if there is any, you will enjoy transforming it into lovely, gently spiced cranberry muffins. The cranberry offers me a brighter option than tomatoes, which is a popular table favorite for chutneys in India, where they are plentiful and available all year round.
