Christmas Mangoes, no, these are for chutney.


Before the Christmas holiday period I purchased a tray of mangoes.  I probably should have waited until after Christmas as mangoes are now considerably cheaper than they were then.  Anyway I bought the mangoes to make mango chutney particularly for one of my granddaughters.  The eldest granddaughter loves my mango chutney and I only had one jar to give her when she was visiting at Christmas.

The mangoes that I bought I cut up and packaged in 3lb lots as that is what is required for the chutney recipe.  The lots are now frozen and now that Christmas is over I will have some time to make the chutney.

The recipe for the chutney is one that my sister gave to me.  When we both lived in Canberra she would buy a tray of mangoes to go halves with me.  She and I no longer live in Canberra so I will be making chutney throughout the year using the frozen mangoes.

    I got a tray of mangoes when we were in Canberra in November$15 for a tray of big ones at Petra’s dad’s shop !! I made one batch of chutney but the others were so good and kept for ages so we had them in salads and for dessert!Yum we can’t get them for that price here! I still have one lot frozen for more chutney!

      My first tray cost me $25. Exorbitant I know but the second tray, which had 16 in it, I actually bought from Aldi for $15. Like you they were beautiful and we used most of them over the Christmas holiday period. I still have four left so I might get 3 lb from that.

  2. Ooh looks good. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I might just give this a go.

      It is certainly our favourite chutney. It is lovely if you heat it slightly then pour it over cream cheese and use it as a dip.

    Oh yum. I always have trouble getting the flesh from the stone.

      The only way to do that is to get as much flesh cut off as you possibly can then eat the flesh remaining on the stone. You need to do that part over the sink.
