Top Review by IngridH

We absolutely loved this! It was so easy to make, and just looked spectacular on the plate. I made the chutney two days ahead, and was very pleased with the way it turned out. The fruit was soft, and just a bit sweet, which was a perfect match for the tangy pork. I typically don't use apple juice, so subbed a bit of hard apple cider for it (and enjoyed the rest of the bottle while I grilled!). This is a definite make-again, perfect for a backyard party or a weeknight dinner (as long as you make the chutney ahead). Thanks for sharing!
