I don’t think I realized how un-American my family was when it came to certain meals until sometime in high school.

You’d think the realization would’ve come sooner when every other friend’s family would have things like ketchup, mustard and mayo on the table for a typical burger night and mine was an assortment of relishes and chutneys, but I guess I was a little slow on the uptake back then.

With a dad that grew up in India, heavily influenced by British culture, chutney was a burger night staple.

Mango Peach Chutney makes a great topping for these spice rubbed grilled pork chops.

If for some reason we had run out of the chutney on burger night, dad wasn’t pleased and he’d make sure to let everyone know just that as he’d pile on the relish instead, the idea of ketchup never even crossing his mind.

I know adults that don’t even know what chutney is, yet I’ve been eating it for as long as I can remember thanks to my dad and his weird melting pot of cultural upbringing.

While chutney can mean a variety of things in the condiment world, I think it’s most often associated with mango in a sort of jam-like form and for good reason; it’s beyond delicious on just about everything it touches.

With summer here and grilling season in full swing, a traditional chutney with a seasonal twist sounded like the perfect companion to these thick cut local pork chops I took out of the deep freezer.

The spicy rub on the pork needed a sweet accompaniment and mango and peaches were just the thing.

One of my favorite things about chutney as compared to a compote or jam is the slight hint of tang it has from the vinegar and this fruity version was the perfect opportunity to use Nakano’s mango seasoned rice vinegar for that needed balance between sweet and tart.

Generously spooned on top of the grilled pork, it lends just the right added touch to an easy summer dinner.

Serve these flavorful chops with a simple side salad for a lighter meal or add some rice or potatoes (I’d suggest a crispy air fryer hasselback potato!) for something more filling.

These grilled Spice Rubbed Pork Chops pair perfectly with the sweet mango peach chutney.
