This very flexible chutney goes well with curries, chicken, pork, lamb, and game. Serve it with cream cheese and crackers...over a warmed wheel of brie cheese...in marinades, salads and dressings. The possibilities are endless.

Very yummy! I had frozen mango cubes to use up (2 cups) and 4 cups of apples; I followed the recipe as written and it worked fine.I did not have a pepper, I forgot I had added it to a pot of soup yesterday!! Duh!! As the previous reviewer noted, this is a mildly spiced chutney, the sweetness was fine for our taste. The grated ginger does give it a bit of a bite, love it!!! Updated 9/21 - I added 1/2 cup to my favourite BBQ sauce and basted some pork ribs with the mixture, really tasty!!
I made this and actually got 7 pint jars out of it, but it's a snap to make, more sweet than spicy so ramp up your spices to your own taste, and serve with everything! Everybody's getting some of this for Christmas!
Absolutely terrific recipe! This is wonderful - very aromatic and not too hot. You can adjust the "heat" by trying different blends of curry, or just add a pinch of cayenne if you like it a bit hotter. I substituted 1/4 c. of dried cranberries (Trader Joe's) for the sweet red pepper, which was a nice substitution. As the author states, this is absolutely fabulous with nearly any type of meat - chicken, pork, fish, etc. I've also paired it up with a curried cauliflower and chickpea dish, which was terrific. Thanks for sharing this.
