Traditional Mango Chutney

READY IN: 12hrs
Top Review by Mary Leverington

This is really an excellent recipe. It's available throughout the Internet. I have a few suggestions. Make sure the mangoes are ripe but still pretty firm. The recipe says hard, but hard mangoes are not as flavorful, so try for the mid-point. Keep the heat to a simmer and don't cook it too much or it will turn to mush. Secondly, when you simmer the chutney the first time, keep the lid off the pot so that it can cook down. I think it's also a little too hot, so I recommend you cut the red pepper flakes down a little bit and then add some more during the second time you cook it if you want it hotter. It makes three and a half PINT jars, not 4 half-pint (one cup) jars. It's really simple to make and worth the effort.
