Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie. A mere mention of these staple dishes and one’s mind drifts to memories of Thanksgiving dinners past. Cranberry sauce is another one of those elements that can be an essential part to many families’ Thanksgiving feast. While pouring through the Coca-Cola recipe vault, we came across this delicious cranberry chutney with a Coca-Cola twist from Atlanta’s own Chef Linton Hopkins.

This cranberry chutney recipe is perfect for those who can’t image Thanksgiving without cranberry sauce or an ice-cold Coca-Cola. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
