Citrus-Cranberry Apple Chutney

Brandy Williamson is Executive Chef at the Daniel Reed Hospitality restaurants in Savannah.  You know them as Local 11ten, Public Kitchen and Bar and their newest addition SOHO South Cafe.  The menus vary and the food is great at each spot.  We asked Chef Brandy if she would contribute a recipe to our 12 days promotion.  Here’s what she offered. This recipe goes great with pork chops, but can also be served with turkey, duck, or roasted chicken.  Sounds great!  Let us know if you try it!
