Since this chutney is packed full of flavors, you can also use it as a marinade for your meats. Just make sure you thin the mixture out a bit using some apple cider vinegar or water and that should work just fine.
Or, you can use it as a thick rub on your meat chunks before you roast or bake them! Just remember to keep stirring the mixture continuously when you’re trying to reduce the liquid and thicken its texture.
This will help keep the chutney from getting burnt.
And guess what? You can also try different variations of this recipe by modifying the ingredients as per your taste and personal preference.
Throw some chopped apples in there to lend it a nice flavor base or add some bell peppers to make the chutney more mild.
You can also take the tangy taste of the chutney up a notch by adding in a little orange juice.

Just like jams and other such preparations, the best way to store this mango chutney is to first pour it into a clean, sterilized glass jar and then close the lid tightly.
Make sure the chutney has cooled down completely before you pour it into the jar though.
You can then pop it into your refrigerator and it should stay good inside for months. You can also make it in a huge batch and store it in the freezer.
Slice your mango in half, and then grab a cup. Place the meat side into the bowl and glide the mango down the lid. The mango meat falls right into the cup off the peel. Then dice it up.
Mango chutney is a spicy condiment you can use for so many recipes, spread on toast, crackers, and more. The texture is jelly-like with some chunks of ingredients in each bite.
You are welcome to use a white vinegar if you do not have apple cider vinegar. ACV offers a lot more tang and sour components, but white distilled will work in this recipe if you need. Use the same amount for either vinegar.
Feel free to reach for an agave to replace the honey if you would like. I have not tried a sugar free option but you are welcome to give it a try and see how it turns out if you would like.
