  3. Place pork in a 5-quart Dutch oven and rub with the spice mixture.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine vinegar, garlic, plum chutney, and 1/2 cup water; pour over pork. Cover pot, and place in oven on lower rack. Bake until pork is very tender and separates easily when pulled with a fork, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
