My friends and I have made this dish every Thanksgiving since the recipe was published. It is wonderful! Very beautiful - jewel-like colors - and delicious; good for people who don't like onions in chutney, as it's just fruit and pecans. The vinegar keeps it from being too sweet. Good cool or room temperature; great for days.
