This sweet and savory chutney is delicious with a holiday baked ham, roast turkey, or as an addition to a cheese platter. This also makes leftovers standouts—slather it in your Thanksgiving turkey sandwich, whisk a spoonful into last night's vinaigrette for a new-spin on the usual salad, or spoon it over reheated sweet potatoes for loads of autumnal flavor. Make a big batch of this chutney to keep on hand in the fridge, or jar it up and give it to friends, family, and party hosts as a delicious gift from your kitchen. Simply tie jars with ribbon and include a tag that lists the many ways this versatile condiment can be used.
