1. Combine raisins, brown sugar, preserves, vinegar, orange juice, ginger, curry powder, and oranges in a large nonaluminum saucepan; bring to boil. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat 15 minutes or until slightly thickened and syrupy, stirring frequently.
2. Add strawberries; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in almonds. Spoon into a bowl; cover and chill. Serve with nonfat or light cream cheese and gingersnaps. Garnish with strawberry fans, if desired.

This fresh chutney is quickly made. It makes a refreshing, light appetizer for lunch or serve it as a snack.
