This cranberry chutney is a twist on the usual cranberry sauce. It makes a great accompaniment to a Thanksgiving turkey or roast chicken. It's easy and fast to make - you cook it in the microwave!

Microwave Cranberry Chutney


1 package fresh cranberries
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins (use golden raisins if you can find them)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
3/4 cup water
1 pear, peeled and chopped
4 tablespoons chopped onion
1 stalk celery, chopped


Mix, berries, sugar, raisins, spices and water in a microwave-proof bowl until berries burst, about 10 minutes on high.

Then add the pear, onion and celery and cook at 50% power for 30 minutes.

Watch carefully while cooking -- microwaves are all different.
