Homemade Mango Chutney2017-06-09
Mango chutney is a popular condiment in Indian cooking, pairing well with curry, but it is not used as much in cooking. Tropical mangoes from Hale Groves are handpicked at their peak and are bursting with lasting flavor. Available from August 1-29 this year, Hale selects only the most magnificent fresh mangoes and delivers them to your door straight from the farm.
If you have leftover mangoes, prepare or double this Mango Chutney recipe to use as a spread on sandwiches or even served as an appetizer with bread and cheese. Versions of mango chutney can be smooth, chunky, tangy, spicy or mild; this version is fairly smooth and is delicious paired with shrimp, pork, fish, chicken or simply spooned over rice. Feel free to also use it as a glaze when grilling chicken or pork or even over roasted sweet potatoes.
