This is the only recipe for Country Captain I've ever been truly happy with.It's for the slow-cooker, but there is more prep time to it than usual crockpot recipes. If you wish to make this, though, please don't skip any steps, as the subtle flavors combine to be so good. I adapted this from Cook's Country Magazine, (April, 2006). The dish has it's roots in India, and was carried to the Southern U.S. by British ship captains who sailed the spice routes in the 1700's. This is the way I made it, to my family's delight...and mine! I used my own Mango Chutney Laurel's Mango Chutney because I think it's better than Major Grey's, but you can substitute Major Grey's in a pinch. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
