Delicious with pork, this sweet, tangy chutney would also be a good match for chicken or a cheese board. At Chef Camp in Minnesota, it's served with Chilean-Spiced Pork Roast (also on


  • 1/2 medium pineapple, peeled, cored and chopped (2 cups)
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup thinly sliced white onion
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup thinly julienned fresh lemongrass, or 2 tablespoons purchased lemongrass paste*
  • 2 tablespoons currants
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh jalapeno pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3 whole cloves


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to medium-low heat. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until chutney reaches a syrupy, honey-like thickness, about 45 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick. Cool completely, then season to taste with more salt. Stored in a lidded jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.


  • *Shopping Tip Buy fresh lemongrass at Asian markets, or take advantage of an easy shortcut: Many large supermarkets stock tubes of ground-up lemongrass in the produce section. Squeeze a spoonful into stir-fries, curries and marinades for a fragrant boost of Thai flavor.
