Try something new with your holiday dinner!

Can you name three recipes that will go with your holiday turkey or ham that you haven't made in years past? Here are my picks:

1. Cranberry Chutney--check below for the recipe.
2. Roast Brussels Sprouts--check back on December 14, 2010 for the recipe
3. Pineapple Souffle--check back on December 21, 2010 for the recipe

Instead of the usual Cranberry sauce from a jar or cranberry mold, why not try something different and new. It's quick and easy and adds a lot of color to your table!

Cranberry Chutney

4 cups cranberries, fresh or frozen
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped apples--I like Grannie Smith's best
1/2 cup chopped pears
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup chopped walnuts ( or use your favorite nuts)
2 Tablespoon minced candied ginger
2 Tablespoon lemon juice (fresh is best)
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon onion salt

Put all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
Stir continually so it does not stick.
Then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes
Keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Makes 4-6 half pints.

I hope you will enjoy this new and fun recipe for your holidays.
Stop back on December 14, 2010 and see how to cook Roasted Brussels Sprout.
