    This chutney goes well with curries but also as a garnish for fish or steak. It is great as a gift too. Perfect if you live anywhere near an old mango tree.

    Really nice recipe. Great after being in the fridge for a couple of days. Yummo  -  04 Jan 2013


    I chose this recipe because it did have specific mango measurement - with 3 types of mangos of vastly different sizes I am aware of how many recipes say a number which is misleading. I have been making green mango chutney for about 50 years and decided to have a variation - never again. My husband suggested after a taste test that I give it someone I dont like as he wont eat it. Even after spending some time trying to improve it -it still doesn't compare with Miss Schaeurs 50 0dd year old recipe.  -  13 Jan 2015


    Way too hot. I used less than 1/4 cup of deseeded small chillies and 1/2 dessertsppon of black pepper and all I can taste is the hot chillies. Much too hot for both my husband and I to eat. I do not know what to do to fix my chutney so I dont have to throw it in the bin.  -  18 Jan 2018
