  • 1 large red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced
  • 375ml white wine vinegar
  • 400g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp salt

Method

  1. Cut each mango in half down the sides of the flat stone that runs through the centre of the fruit, so that you end up with 2 fleshy halves. Now take each mango half and cut into the flesh, making quite chunky diagonal pieces – take care not to cut through the skin. Turn each half inside out, then slice away the chunks of mango that stand proud from the skin. Cut the flesh from around the stones, trim off the skin and chop the flesh.

  2. Heat the oil in a large, deep sauté pan, add the onion and fry for a few mins until starting to soften. Stir in the ginger and cook, stirring frequently, for about 8-10 mins until the onion is golden. Stir in all of the spices, except the turmeric, and fry until toasted.

  3. Stir in the turmeric, add the apple and pour in 500ml water, then cover the pan and cook for 10 mins. Stir in the mango and chilli, then cover and cook for 20 mins more until the apple is pulpy and the mango is tender.

  4. Pour in the vinegar, stir in the sugar and salt, then leave to simmer uncovered for 30 mins, stirring frequently (especially towards the end of the cooking time so that it doesn’t stick) until the mixture is pulpy rather than watery. Spoon into sterilised jars.

delicious although I would agree with most comments - it definitely needed to be cooked down more than it specifies

I had some VERY ripe mangoes for this recipe, which meant that it was a very messy experience and the chutney doesn't look quite how I'd like it to. However this is a delicious recipe and a marvellous way to use windfalls and bargain mangoes.

How long would this safely last in sealed jars (if I made in October to be given in December as an example) and would the jars need to be kept refrigerated for storage before they were opened?

Stores in a cool dark cupboard…under the stairs or spare wardrobe. The chutney will keep unopened for 12 months. (won't last that long in my house :))

I am very happy with how this turned out. I also used frozen mango slices.

Very tasty chutney! It took me 40 minutes of simmering to get to the stage of pulpiness. I've used frozen mango slices - much easier than peeling the fresh ones!
