Ingredients

  • 9 Small or 7 Large Champagne® mangos (peeled, seeded and diced - enough to yield 12 Cups)
  • 2 Large red bell peppers (cored seeded and diced)
  • 1 Large white or yellow onion (diced)
  • 6 cloves of garlic (peeled and minced)
  • 1/4 cup Serrano or jalapeño peppers (cored seeded and diced - about 3-4 peppers)
  • 16oz canned pineapple chunks (drained but reserve the juice)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup golden raisens
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh ginger (peeled and diced)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 Large or 2 Small cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cloves (whole)
  • 1/2 Tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp ground all-spice
  • 1/2 Tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 Tsp salt
  • 2 Cups cider vinegar
  • 16 Half pint glass jars (or 8 pint-sized jars; sterilized)
  • 1 cheese cloth and pin

Directions

Step 1 In a Dutch oven or large pot, combine the pineapple juice, vinegar, lemon juice, molasses, sugars, salt, ground ginger, allspice, nutmeg, garlic, hot peppers and lemon zest.
Step 2 Place the whole cloves and cinnamon in the cheesecloth and pin it closed so the spice does not fall out. Drop the cheesecloth in the same pot.
Step 3 Combine ingredients and bring to boil on med-low heat. Be sure to keep mixing to ensure the sugar dissolves. Stir in the mangos and the fresh ginger, then reduce heat to simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 4 Add onion, bell pepper, pineapple, raisins and cranberries, mixing well. Simmer for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mix is syrupy and slightly thickened. Remove the cheesecloth from mix and discard.
Step 5 Scoop chutney mix into the sterile glass jars, and then wipe the jar rims with a clean, damp cloth. Seal jars tightly with lids and rings. The last step is to preserve by warming the jars in a bath of simmering water for approximately 10 minutes. Simply place jars in a large pot with hot water (barely simmering) on med-low heat. Water should cover jars completely. Carefully remove from heat and allow the jars to dry on a dry kitchen towel until cooled.
Step 6 Keep refrigerated until ready to use.

TIP: This is an excellent recipe to serve over pork roast or chicken.
