Savory Mango Relish (Chutney)

This makes a lot but you can reduce the proportions accordingly for a smaller amount.

  • 25 Mangos -approximately 12 cups sliced-firm yet ripe
  • 6 ½ cups sugar (or SplendaT)
  • 4 chili peppers- seeds removed and finely chopped
  • 2 cups vinegar -no specific kind
  • 3 cups golden raisins
  • 2 large clove garlic
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • ½ cup finely chopped ginger
  • 1 tsp salt


  • ½ cup toasted, coarsely chopped macadamia nuts

Bring vinegar and sugar to a boil for five minutes. Add mango and all other ingredients, cook slowly for 90 minutes. Cool and put into canning jars. Note: Canning jars should be sterilized before use. Fill the jar to the top and seal with plastic wrap and close tightly or wax seal it.

- You can choose to include nuts in the mix or have them in a serving dish for each guest to serve themselves.

- You can substitute other fruit as well such as citrus or nectarines and the recipe will work well. If you choose to substitute fruit, you may want to create a blend of sugar using 3 ¼ c granulated sugar (or SplendaT) and 3 ¼ c brown sugar to better complement the citrus.
