Mango Chutney

A few people have asked, so here's my recipe for Mango Chutney!
First, you've gotta get a bunch of mangoes. best plan is to buy a case of them when they're discounted for being a little soft.
I chopped up 4 big ones, so about 1.5kg of flesh, and put it in a big pot.
Then chopped a bunch of onions, and into the pot.
I put about half a kilo of organic rapadura (evaporated cane juice sugar), about 1/2 litre of apple cider vinegar, and a couple of chopped garlic cloves and chillis. Then I threw in some celtic sea salt, some curry powder, garam masaala, ground coriander, cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and a couple of cloves.

Then stirred the lot up, simmering and stirring for about an hour, maybe a bit more.

Stir and stir, till the sugar starts to caramelise with the onions, and everything reduces and thickens.36 Mango chutney
When I was sick of stirring, I let it cool a little, then scooped it into jars :)
