Preparation Notes: Plus overnight marinatin

Serving notes: Two 350g (12oz) jars


PREP TIME:0 hours 20 mins

COOK TIME:1 hour 30 mins

TOTAL TIME:1 hour 50 mins


4 firm mangoes, totalling 1.4 kg (3lb)

350 g (12oz) light muscovado sugar

Large pinch cumin seeds

4 cardamom pods, split open

1 tsp. ground turmeric

1 whole clove

5 cm (2in) piece fresh root ginger, peeled and finely grated

400 ml (14fl oz) distilled malt vinegar

3 g large garlic cloves

1 large onion, finely chopped


  1. Mangoes should be peeled using a vegetable peeler. Slice the flesh completely free of the stone, then chop it into bite-sized pieces and place it in a big basin. Overnight marinating is achieved by stirring in the sugar and covering.
  2. Add the other ingredients after pouring the mixture into a big pan. When the mango is translucent and the majority of the extra liquid has evaporated, bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer slowly for about 112 hours, stirring periodically.
  3. After turning off the heat, let the chutney cool for ten minutes. Pour it hot into sterile jars, cover with a waxed disc, and seal immediately.
  4. Simply put, assemble. Put the chutney in jars with labels in a tiny wicker basket that has been lined with colored tissue paper.

Have you ever tried the mango ginger chutney from Trader Joe’s? Well consider this recipe it’s doppelgänger!

  • Mango: The beauty of this recipe is that you can use fresh or frozen mango. Either works great so grab what’s most convenient for you!
  • Ginger: Freshly grated ginger is crucial for this chutney. If you must use ground ginger make sure to start out with a little, taste, and adjust as desired.
  • Sugar: Organic cane sugar keeps the color of this chutney a nice light color. Feel free to use coconut sugar but note that the color of the chutney will be dark.
  • Vinegar: I like to use organic apple cider vinegar but feel free to use white vinegar.
  • Onions: Choose either red, yellow or white onions.
  • Red Pepper: Red bell pepper or green bell pepper.
  • Raisins: Golden raisins are what we used but you can use regular raisins.
  • Seasonings: Just a little bit of salt and a pinch of cracked red pepper help to bring out all of the flavors!


You won’t believe how simple it is to prepare this chutney, in fact. Simply add the items to a large saucepan and whisk well. Stirring constantly, cook over medium-high heat until thick. 20 minutes or so.

Decide if you would like to use it within the next few weeks or if you’d like to store it for future use. To store in the fridge, pour the finished chutney into a container with a lid. It will stay good for up to 4 weeks.


If you want to put this chutney on your pantry shelf for up to 18 months, process it in a water bath. It only takes a few more minutes of your time and if you can boil water, you can water bath can! (Go to our guide to water bath canning for detailed instructions.) Pour hot chutney into hot jars, leaving ¼-inch headspace. Wipe rims of jars with a dampened clean paper towel to remove residue, place a lid on the jar and screw a ring on until finger-tight. Process in a boiling water canner according to the following altitudes.

  • 0-1,000 ft above sea level = 10 min
  • 1,001-3,000 ft above sea level = 15 min
  • 3,001 – 6,000 ft above sea level = 20 min
  • 6,001 – 8,000 ft above sea level = 25 min
  • 8,001 – 10,000 ft above sea level = 30 min

  • Use a deep, heavy pot to ensure that there is room for the chutney to rise while it cooks. You need space to stir without being concerned that it will boil over and spill. It is quite hot and in disarray! I advise using a saucepan of at least 5 quarts.
  • While the chutney is cooking, freeze a tiny glass plate to use as a test for doneness. Spoon a small quantity onto the plate when you believe it is ready, then put it back in the freezer for two minutes. Take a finger and comb the chutney. It is finished if it separates on the plate. The chutney has to cook for a few more minutes to set if it comes back together.
