A Giveaway on All Saints Day

Today I'll be busy all day taking down the Halloween decorations and transforming the front porch tree into a Thanksgiving tree.  I'm also gonna have a little giveaway to celebrate All Saints Day...a day to celebrate all Christian saints, particularly those who have no special days of their own.

THE GIVEAWAY:  Cranberry Chutney!  What is Chutney you might ask?  Chutney is a relish originating in India made with fruit and spices.  The Chutney preserved the fruit itself so that it could be eaten out of Indian curries.

Taste of Gourmet's Cranberry Chutney is a sweet flavorful condiment filled with whole cranberries and spices to serve with roast turkey, chicken, or pork.  You can mix a little of the Chutney into chicken salad or spread it on sliced turkey/ham sandwiches.  A great party food treat:  Cover the top of Brie cheese with the Cranberry Chutney, wrap it in pastry, and bake until browned!

For a real treat, add some Cranberry Chutney Bagel Spread* to your's one of my traditions on the "Day After Halloween!"

Recipe for Cranberry Chutney Bagel Spread:
2 to 3 tbsp Cranberry Chutney
8 oz cream cheese at room temperature

Mix the Cranberry Chutney into softened cream cheese.  You can add a bit of milk or orange juice, if needed for softness.  Spread onto warm bagels and enjoy!  The spread will last in the frig for a week).

The Cranberry Chutney is the Taste of Gourmet "Product of the Month" during November.  Taste of Gourmet has a "Product of the Month" each month...a fundraising project to benefit the St. Jude Children's Hospital.  Purchasing the Cranberry Chutney during the month of November will generate a $1.00 donation to St. Jude Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  The hospital is devoted to research and treatment toward eliminating chronic childhood diseases like leukemia and is the only childhood cancer research center designated by the National Cancer Institute.

One winner will receive a jar of the Cranberry Chutney.  All you need to do to enter is leave a comment!  That's it...easy peasy!  I will announce the winner of this giveaway on Saturday morning, November 3, 2012.  The winner MUST contact me at:  Miss Janice {at} Miss Janice {dot} com no later than Monday morning, November 5, 2012 to claim your prize!  If not...I will redraw!!!!
