Mango and Red Onion Chutney

Have been playing with chutneys today and thought I'd post a couple. Mangoes are great in a chutney as are red onions, add one of each and go from there !
Basic Ingredients:
  • Mango
  • Red onion
  • Sugar
  • Wine vinegar
  • Salt
  • White pepper
  • Tabasco
Add roughly equal quantities of Mango flesh and rough chopped red onion
Add red or white wine vinegar, 1/2 cup per Mango, 4-6 Tbsp sugar and 1 tsp salt. 
Simmer for 20-40 minutes till onions and mango are soft and taste. 
Add heat with the pepper and Tabasco till quite hot to taste then leave overnight to cool, the heat of the chilled chutney will reduce overnight.

Try variations by using different fruits, apples and cider vinegar are good ... chuck some cider in too. Raisins or sultanas add a nice sweet hit to chutneys. A web search gives lots of ideas but I suggest you start with a simple one like my Mango and red onion and then play with different flavours.
