That is it. I love it with grilled or baked or fryed pork chops. But, it is way to costly.

Here is a link that might be useful: Major Grey Style Chutney
If you like Mango Chutney, this one isn't a Major Grey type, but is very good:
Mango Chutney (about 2 cups)
1 T oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 t grated ginger
2 cinnamon sticks
1/2 t chili powder
2 lbs. fresh or frozen ripe mango flesh, roughly chopped
1 1/2 c clear vinegar
1 c sugar
salt to taste
Heat the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat and saute the ginger and garlic for about a minute...you want to smell the fragrance, but not brown the garlic.
Add the rest of the ingredients except the salt, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about an hour, or until the mango is cooked and starting to break down into a thick, chunky sauce, almost like preserves.
Now salt to taste, remove the cinnamon sticks and cloves and pour into hot sterilized jars. Seal the jars and allow them to cool completely, then store in the refrigerator.
Sometimes, since I like a pretty hot chutney, I'll slice some serrano peppers into very thin rounds (removing most of the seeds, I'm not crazy :D ) and mix them into the chutney just before I take it off the heat.
This chutney is wonderful with just about any kind of grilled meat or fish. It's also terrific as a snack, with Indian pappadams (thin lentil crackers) or some other kind of cracker or chip to dip. For a walk on the wild side, substitute it for jelly in a peanut butter sandwich!
I don't know about Major Grey's, but here's an old family recipe from my aunt that is really good. She got it from a native Hawaiian when they lived there about 50 years ago and we've been making it ever since. This makes a huge batch, so you might want to try a smaller one first to see if you like it. I prefer it without the almonds.
