Home Made Apple & Mango Chutney ~ 蘋果+芒果酸辣醬
This is one of the chutney that I like and on my to-do-list already. Once if I can get a bargain of the fruits, I will make lots of them and store in an airtight jar for later or for a gift. If you follow me for a bit of time, you know that I always like to make my own food gift for people.
This chutney is a sweet, tart and is gorgeously spiced. It has a bit tangy but not too sweet, it also can increase your appetite. Full of fruity aroma with some spicy kick. This chutney uses both crystallized and ground ginger since I prefer.
I like to serve it with my toast with a piece of blue cheese or on my basmati rice, even with my tortilla wrap with cooked dal. Or stuff on a baked Vol-au-Vent for the party canapés . A good companion for many dishes,
Yum Yum, do you like it, or have you got any idea to serve it, tell me please? 🙂
Something I have to tell you or advise you or perhaps you won’t make the same silly mistake like me 😦 . My saucepan got burned seriously because I haven’t kept stirring when the chutney was cooked on the stove.
Home Made Apple & Mango Chutney
- 1 cup Distilled white vinegar
- 3/4 to 1 1/4 cup Raw sugar ( I only use 3/4 cup coconut sugar )
- 3 cups Apple and Mango each, all peeled and diced
- 1/2 cup Raisins,
- 1/4 cup Crystallized ginger, chopped (optional)
- 1 tsp Ground ginger
- 1 tsp Ground nutmeg ( use fresh grated nutmeg will be nicer )
- 1 tsp Mustard seeds, whole
- 1/4 tsp Red chilli pepper flakes (optional)
- Combine the vinegar and sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a boil, stir until sugar dissolves.
- Add all the remaining ingredients into the vinegar mixture, simmer and uncover until syrupy and slightly thickened, it will take for about 45 minutes. Stir occasionally during cooking.
- Sterilise 3 or 4 glass jars by putting in a large pot of boiling water for 15 minutes.
- Pour the cooked chutney into the clean jar, leave for about 1/2 inch space. Cover with lids, turn it upside down. Let it cool down and store in the fridge once you open it.
- The crystallized ginger and red chilli pepper flakes are optional, if you don’t really like spicy, skip both of them, that’s fine!
- You can add 1 chopped onion into the chutney during cooking, I think most of the people like it too. But except our oriental vegan or vegetarian.
- If you haven’t got apples on hand, use other fruits will do, or even use all 6 cups mangoes.
