One of the perks (or drawbacks) to growing up in my house is that you have to at least TRY a LOT of new foods. I've introduced my kids to all sorts of crazy foods and pretty much insisted that they at least take a taste of each of them. "Try something new - you might like it"." My kids have heard it so often - they think it's my life mantra.
Setting a good example for my kids and trying something new today. Hope this goes well.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup kosher salt
3-4 pound boneless pork loin roast, trimmed
2 cups apple wood chips
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
3 Tablespoons water
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons fresh grated ginger
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 6-24 hours.
15 minutes before grilling, soak wood chips in water.
For chutney, combine wine, apricots, cherries, vinegar, water, sugar and ginger.
Bring to a simmer. Cover and cook 10 minutes.
Add butter, Dijon and dry mustard and continue to cook until thickened. (4-6 minutes)
Remove from heat. Season with salt. Transfer to a bowl to cool to room temperature.
Courtney is probably the most POLITE picky eater that I've ever met - she's always very complimentary of the foods that she doesn't like. After she tasted this chutney she told me that it "LOOKED like it would taste good." :) I love that girl. Here's to a lifetime of "Trying something new."
