Also, yesterday, I tapped into my inner Nadia G., and made homemade spicy mango chutney.
Mangoes were on sale at la Coop, so I figured “how hard can it be?” Turns out it’s not hard at all.
3 limes- juice and some zest
sugar (I don’t measure things, so I don’t know how much I used)
1 pepper, minus seeds- cut into rings (use as much or as little as you want)
just enough water to keep the mangoes from burning to the bottom of the pan
Put all ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a boil, then switch to low heat and let simmer for about 30mins, constantly stirring to avoid stickage.
When I first put it into the jar, it smelled like… nothing. Kind of like boiled potatoes. I was super disappointed. But after leaving it in the fridge for a couple of hours, I gave it a taste. Yum!
I can’t wait to actually use it on something. I might have to using it as sandwich spread before I figure out a recipe that I can incorporate it into.
