You may note in the recipe it says to buy canned mango chutney. I checked it out in the store, at least $5 for a smaller jar. For about that much I can make my own and have the experience of making it! Can I tell you how many recipes there are for mango chutney online? I wasn't sure how to proceed? So many recipes, so many spices I didn't have and was completely unfamiliar with! I finally settled on a pretty basic one from Epicurious (on their app too). I roughly halved this recipe. I used two small apples, one large mango, half of everything else, some extra curry powder, dash of red pepper flakes and more cinnamon for the nutmeg. Oh and regular raisins too. The recipe directions are for canning the chutney. I just simmered it covered for about 30 minutes, til it looked like a preserve. It almost smells like Christmas while it is simmering away. I thought it was a weird combo, wasn't even sure I would like it.

I have to say I was mightily impressed with myself. I have some chutney in the fridge, it is sounding really good for lunch tomorrow.
