Jalapeno Chutney

If you are like us, you put a pepper plant or two out in the spring and then you get more peppers than you know what to do with. They are so easy to grow. Usually Kirby just slices and pickles them but I wanted something more so he made me this wonderful chutney. We put it on everything - but the best is a grilled chicken breast or a nice pork loin.

4 medium fresh mangos
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3 cups white sugar (Kirby used Splenda)
1/2 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vinegar (white works well)
1 tablespoon ground fresh ginger or 1/2 T. dry ginger
1 - 2 cups diced fresh jalapenos
1 tsp. salt
1/2 T pepper

Peel the mangos and remove from the pit. Chop into chunks. Place all ingredients into large pot. Bring mixture to boil and continue boiling uncovered for 25 minutes.

Mixture will thicken slightly as liquid is reduced.

Pour into large bowl of food processor, pulsing briefly to coarsely mince the chutney before serving. Makes approximately 4 cups.

Serve over chicken, pork or turkey. Can be refrigerated for 2-3 weeks.
