Quick Apricot Chutney

Notes: This simple, sweet-tart relish lasts as long as a jar of jam, which in my refrigerator can be many moons. Eat the chutney on toast with cream cheese; serve it with meat, poultry, or a curry; or cook with it, as in the pork tenderloin recipe that follows.

This recipe goes with Pork Tenderloin with Apricot Chutney
