Preparation Method: Pineapple Mango Chutney Recipe
Cut the pineapple into small pieces and sprinkle with salt. Put the pineapple in a large bowl and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
Drain the pineapple, then rinse it thoroughly to remove the excess saltiness.
Peel the ginger and cut into very fine silvers with a sharp knife.
Remove the outer skin of the mango and roughly chop the flesh. Discard the stone.
Combine the pineapple, mango and ginger into a large bowl and stir in the raisins, mint, vinegar and nutmeg. Mix well.
Cover the bowl with cling film and pierce this several times with the tip of a sharp knife.
Cook the pineapple mixture on high for 15 minutes, stirring frequently during the cooking.
Add the sugar to the cooked fruit and stir until it has completely dissolved.
Continue cooking the chutney on high for another 15 minutes, stirring after each 3 minutes to prevent the chutney from burning.
After this, now run a wooden spoon through the chutney, if you find any hard piece, remove it or continue cooking for a further 5 minutes, checking after each minute until setting point is reached.
Pour the pineapple mango chutney immediately into hot, sterilized jars and cover and seal in the usual way.
Serve with curries, ploughman’s lunches or cold pies.
If fresh pineapples are not available, use the equivalent amount of drained, tinned pineapple. You must make sure that the pineapple has been tinned in natural juice and not in sugar syrup.
