It's true, cranberries are bitter, and traditional recipes use lots of sugar to bring out the fruit's great flavor. In this recipe for cranberry chutney, however (which I learned from Indian cookbook author Julie Sahni nearly 20 years ago), exotic spices take the place of all that sweetness, without overwhelming the rest of the meal. This chutney's best if you make it the day before -- and it's heavenly on a sandwich of leftover sliced turkey.
