Why (the science):  Canned cranberry sauce is made with high fructose corn syrup and regular corn syrup, and offers zero nutritional value- no fiber, vitamins, or minerals.  This homemade chutney version provides 5 grams of fiber per ¼ cup!  That’s a whopping 20% of your daily value for fiber.  It even has 25% of your daily value for vitamin C.  Buh bye, canned sauce!  Hello, fresh cranberry chutney J
