A few weeks ago we went to a dinner for hub’s cousin who is getting married in a few weeks. Her Grandmother, Hub’s Aunt Mary made all the food. Aunt Mary did pulled pork and Mango Chutney (kinda more like a salsa to me, probably why i liked it!) that was just terrific!

place all ingredients in sauce pan, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer 20 mins. Cool completely and serve. I cut the recipe way down and only used 1 mango since it was just for us. It was yummy!!
