• 3 mangoes
• 1 cup brown sugar
• 1 pinch ground turmeric
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
• 1/2 teaspoon table salt
• 2 garlic cloves, chopped
• 1 large onion, finely minced
• 1-1/4 cups malt or white wine vinegar
• 2 sterilized jars
1. Peel the mangoes, remove the pits, and cut the flesh into small cubes. Put the fruit in a bowl with the brown sugar, turmeric, cinnamon, and ginger. Mix thoroughly and set aside, covered, for about two hours.
2. Put the cubes of mango into a thick-bottomed pan and add the salt, vinegar, garlic, and onion. Bring the mixture to a simmer and then cook it over low heat for about 2-1/2 hours. The chutney will slowly thicken. Stir it occasionally to keep it from sticking to the pan.
3. Turn off the heat and let the chutney cool for about 20 minutes. Then pour it into the jars and cap them tightly. Turn the jars over to create a vacuum.
Tip: This chutney tastes even better if you let it sit for a couple weeks. Store it in the fridge.
