Pan Seared Pork Chops with Mango Chutney

Pan Seared Pork Chops with Mango Chutney

You always hear peoples say:”never go grocery shopping while you are hungry”. Well there is a reason for that… you end up buying more than you actually need. And that is what I exactly did yesterday. The market had great looking mangoes, nice shiny plump apples that I could not pass up. I knew we wanted to have pork because my son requested. As I start to look at all my mangoes and apples purchased, I started to play with the idea of making a side sauce with it. Why not a Chutney? Right the way I started looking into all my cook books for a recipe. Either they sounded too spicy, or I did not have all the ingredients in hand, and I definitely was not returning to the store again. Heading back to my kitchen I started peeling, slicing and just plainly having fun with all the ingredients that I had in hand. Well…. the result was great. My son love it even though it was a bit sour for him, bur he ate his whole meal with gusto. As for me, I could not get enough of it…As with all Chutneys they will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of week, and I am thankful of that as I have more than I bargained for.
