Becca’s Mango Chutney…

Sweet Organic Mangoes and Manzanas Nacionales (Costa Rican Apples) make up the base of this delicious and complex condiment. The addition of Organic Indian Curry Powder, sweet onions, chile dulce, ginger, raisins, apple cider vinegar, organic cane sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon makes for a chutney you can eat straight from the jar. It’s a perfect condiment for any Indian dishes (vegetarian or meat curries especially), a glaze for meat, tofu, or vegetables, and according to one of my customers, it also makes a great vanilla ice cream topping! Definitely something to try if you’d like to brighten up your meal! 100% AWESOME y siempre hecho con amor!
