Thank you for posting this recipe. It was exactly what I was looking for. Very easy to make and taste great. I made it today, but substituted Cider Vinegar for the White Wine Vinegar, and used halepeno peppers for the red chilies as that is what I had in the cupboard. It turned out great even with the substitutions. I can't wait to try it again with the original ingredients. It thickened right up in about an hour for me...I thought it might take longer, but was pleasantly surprised it didn't. I got approximately 6 jars. Thanks again for a great, easy recipe that a novice canner like myself could even accomplish! :)
I used wine and balsamic vinegar instead of the rum and white vinegar, because that's what I had. Still delicious. I will make this again with the rum.
This chutney was really, really good!!! I was attracted to this recipe because I am on such a mango and papaya kick, that I could have the best of both worlds. It makes up fast and easy...basically cutting up into one pot, so making the cleanup a snap! It is delicious with the right combination of spices and heat. I did cut the recipe in half because, with any recipe that big, I wanted to make sure that I liked it first and not have gazillions of jars leftover. It made me 7 wonderful little half pint jars....perfect over cream cheese and crackers without any leftovers sitting in the fridge for any length of time. I might also try it over warmed/grilled brie cheese....the possibilities are beginning to look endless!!! I took some over to a friend's place as a gift and we all enjoyed it tremendously. I will make this again...and and at the rate I am going through these jars....I may end up having to make the full recipe!!! Nice of you to share, Pets'R'us
