This sweet and spicy sauce makes the perfect accompaniment for omelets or grilled, roasted or broiled salmon, chicken or pork. Round out the meal with braised baby bok choy, broccoli or a mixed vegetable medley.
Note: If using frozen fruit, reduce the juice by one-half. You can double or triple the recipe but do not double or triple the liquids; use only enough to fill the pot to a depth of 1/4 to 1/2 inch, then use a shallow and wide pot to reduce the juices quickly.
Variation: Peach-Mustard Chutney. Replace mango with 3 to 4 fresh, ripe but firm peaches. To remove the skins, dip peaches in boiling water until the skins loosen, about 30 seconds. Plunge peaches in ice water and slide off skins. Remove from water. Pit, then chop fruit into bite-size pieces.
