Sweet Dreams Mango Chutney

The beauty of this recipe is in its simplicity. Grab a large pot and put all the ingredients in it.   How's that for minimalistic?   Bring to boil before reducing the heat and allowing the mixture to simmer, stirring often, for about 1 hour, or until thick. Allow to cool while you sterilize some jars and then fill them up with this glorious chutney.

You will need:

Mango flesh, 1.5kg, diced
Onions, 1/2kg, diced
Raisins, 1 cup
White vinegar, 500ml
White sugar, 750g
Salt, 1 tablespoon
Mustard seed, 1 teaspoon
Mixed spice, 1 teaspoon
Curry powder, 1 teaspoon
Ground cloves, 1/3 teaspoon
Nutmeg, 1 teaspoon

When mangoes are in season we freeze the mango cheeks so we can make this recipe all year round.

We use our Sweet Dreams Mango Chutney with ham on sandwiches or even lathered over chicken breasts and baked, but the main reason I insist we maintain a steady store in the larder is I always add a big dollop into my bowl when I'm wolfing down a delicious green chicken curry.

About Me

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
