Cranberry-Orange Chutney for Thanksgiving

Yummy !!!
 Cooler weather turns our interest to Fall, 
comfort food and Thanksgiving. 
I am ready for some of my fresh cranberry chutney. 

I got this recipe out of a Southern Living magazine in 1949 before we got married in 1950. (yes, married 66 years )

I worked at a "Five and Dime". 
How many of you remember those stores? 
There is one in Fredericksburg, Texas 
not far from where we live and I love to go there. 
Gotta love Dooley's     Dooley's 5 10 25 Store 
I see they have added 25¢

When the magazine salesman came to our store he would remove the outdated magazines; tear the covers off (to return for credit) and then throw the magazine away. 
Sometimes I would ask for them.
This is where I got this great recipe and others.  
 Cranberry-Orange Chutney

1 cup fresh orange sections
1/4 cup orange juice
4 cups cranberries
2 cups sugar
1 cup chopped, unpeeled apple
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Combine all ingredients in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for five minutes or until berries begin to burst.
Chill until serving time. Yield: 5½ cups. 
Store in refrigerator.  Freezes well.

(You should be able to copy/paste this and save to your files).

So pretty !
 Tastes great on a left-over turkey sandwich.

Happy Fall y'all
