- Remove chutney from the heat. Pour chutney mixture into the slow cooker covering the pork loin roast.

Important Warning: after you fill your crockpot, it's imperative that you evacuate your home for the 6-8 hours it cooks. Otherwise you might go Craze-E smelling this delicious Fall dish! It tastes as good as it smells and the pork is so tender that it falls apart. My only suggestion is to omit the water because the sauce is thin and saucy, not thick like a chutney. We ate it over rice so the thinner sauce worked out great for us. Huge kudos to whoever created this perfect blend of flavors for the Craze-E Contest!
