When my daughter Briana was very little & could barely talk, & we were having Baked Ham for dinner she always would ask me to make fruit Chutney to go with it, but she couldn't say it correctly so it became CHUCK NEY. It was always can we have chuckney with the ham Mom. She loved the combination of all the fruits & the thick rich sauce that went with it.

So this recipe is from years ago when I would make this fruit combination especially for Briana's enjoyment, & I hope you like it too. I would sometimes add extra fruit just to have left overs. Adding Pix Christmas 2016.
