Spicy and sweet mango chutney makes a great condiment for meat and poultry. You can also pour it over a block of cream cheese to serve as an appetiser. This is a classic heirloom Florida recipe dating back to the early 1900s.

  • 3 medium onions, diced
  • 1 cup currants
  • White raisins 1 cup
  • 1 pound brown sugar
  • One 3-inch piece of fresh ginger root, minced
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt or to taste
  • Crushed red pepper flakes to taste


  1. Place all the ingredients in a large cooking pot.
  2. Cook until fruits and vegetables are softened (but not falling apart) and the chutney is thickened.
  3. Seal in glass jars and refrigerate.
