Pear Cranberry Chutney

One day as a kid, I told my parents I didn't like what we were having for breakfast. They told me to make my own, and I've been cooking every since. I love cranberries, and the sweet-sour taste of this chutney goes very well with fall foods.—Andy Anderson, Graham, Washington
