Preparation time includes minimum marination time. A little hard to judge cooking time, since I cook pork & chutney simultaneously and they overlap.

Excellent! I loved the flavors of cumin and fruit. I should have made 2 for leftovers. I followed the recipe exactly with one exception, I used fig infused vinegar instead of the cider.

The marinade for the pork is excellent! I didn't have apricotes on hand so I didn't make the chutney.

This one great recipe. I was looking for a recipe to use up some dried apricots and this really fit the bill. Your instruction were very clear and the only change I made was to substitute craisins for the raisins. I only have one word for this recipe - KEEPER. Thanks, echo echo!
