Mangoes are seasonal fruits so I like to find ways to preserve my favourite fruit & enjoy it while is out of season.One way of preserving mangoes is by making chutneys.I use my chutney as a soup thickener & marinade.
Chutney:A sweet or savory but usually spicy condiment made with a variety of fruits and/or vegetables.
Pinch of salt
1 cup water
1 tbsp oil(your choice)
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 semi-ripe mangoes
1 sliced onion
>>In your pan add your oil & then add garlic.
>>Saute for a minute.
>>Add your onion,ginger,cloves & acv.
>>Cook for 2 minutes.
>>Add water & boil for 5 minutes.
>>Add salt & then add your mangoes.
>>Cook for 30- 45 minutes or to your desired thickens.
>>When your chutney has cooled store it in a glass jar/bottle & refrigerate.

Drinking plain water can be so boring at times.....so I just add herbs & fruit to mine to add some flavour.
>>Fruit(s)(I used watermelon)
>>Herbs(Used a sprig of rosemary)
In a bowl,mash watermelon with a fork.
Add your mashed watermelon,herbs,ice cubes & water to your jar.
For best result refrigerate overnight.
