This gets 5-stars for the WOW factor in flavor & heat. I made a half batch using Sunmaid fruit bits for the raisins. Just 1 small red chili pepper does the trick, and if you don't like it *super* hot, leave out the seeds. The flavors in this chutney blend wonderfully. Next time I'll double the mango though, just cause I love mangos. :) We can't wait to try it with roast pork. Thanks for sharing this very simple and flavorful chutney.
I'm sorry, but this is the worse chutney I have ever made. I followed the recipe to the letter, and after it was finished, I had to add water, salt, and sugar, and it still could use some more help.
