What does one do on a rainy day with little people and a fridge full of mangoes?.....You make a sweet mango chutney! Today we got one and a half kilos of mangoes together, some sugar, some spices, a bit of chilli and some raisins to create a sweet mango chutney to go with our left over christmas ham.
The best thing about making chutney is it makes a great gift for someone and there is nothing like giving a gift you have made yourself. You can add a bit of kitchen string and some kraft paper to create a simple and special gift.
If you are more organised then I was you can created some really special looks with labels and nice fabric and ribbon to cover the lid. You can even add a gift tag with the persons name and all the ingredients, or even the recipe for them to recreate the chutney once they run out. This could also mean you may get a jar in return when they make themselves some!
