    FABULOUS!!! I made this for christmas and served it with the Turkey. It's dark brown colour was strange at first but once everyone tried it, it was a HUGE hit. Guests asked to take some home!!! I reduced the recipe to serve 30 but next time I will make a full batch and give it as a gift. This will most likely become a christmas tradition.  -  15 Sep 2008


    I downsized this recipe to serve 30, you must also downsized cooking times as you can easily overcook. I love chutney with a pork roast, this one is good but not a favourite, I would cut out the allspice or just a pinch as it is a predominate taste in this chutney.  -  15 Sep 2008


    I am a chutney lover, and this is the best of all. It is a wonderful chicken marinade. My favourite way of serving, is on top of cream cheese with crackers. I made this last summer, and gave away as Christmas gifts. Everyone LOVED it! It came out more juicy than I thought. I thought it would thicken as it cooled. Next time I would add more mango.  -  15 Sep 2008
