  1. To prepare chutney, stir together all ingredients in small saucepan. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered for 40 minutes. Remove cover and increase heat slightly; cook for 10 minutes more or until thickened. Remove cinnamon sticks. Refrigerate until ready to warm and serve.

  2. To prepare pork, place gallon-size resealable plastic bag in large bowl. In small bowl, combine boiling water and salt; stir to dissolve and let cool. Turn salt water, remaining ingredients for brine, and pork in bag; seal well. Store in refrigerator for 48 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove pork from brine and rinse well; pat dry.

  3. Cook on a well-oiled grill over medium-high heat for about 40 minutes or until pork is cooked through (170°F), turning occasionally. Serve with warm or room temperature Chutney.
