Homemade Mango Chutney Recipe

  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 1 hour
  • Yield: Makes 6 (8-ounce) jars


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 6 cups mangoes (4 to 5), peeled and cut in 3/4-inch pieces (See How to Cut a Mango)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds, whole
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes (hot)


1 Combine sugar and vinegar in a 6 quart pot; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves.

2 Add remaining ingredients and simmer, uncovered, until syrupy and slightly thickened, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir occasionally during cooking.

3 Pour into clean, hot jars leaving 1/2-inch headspace; close jars. (Do not over-tighten the jars.) Process in a water bath 15 minutes.

To process in a water bath, put a rack on the bottom of tall, large pot. Place the sealed jars on the rack. Fill the pot with water, covering the jars by 1 inch. Bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 15 minutes. Remove the jars from the pot and let sit at room temperature to cool.

    I made a batch of chutney using your recipe, and it was perfect. Additionally I added 1tsp each of ground cinnamon, cloves and allspice. Also 1 tab of Dijon mustard and 2 tsp of salt.
    You guys are great. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Hi I would love to make this chutney but wish to no what the water bath is mentioned in the recipe

    Excellent basic recipe. I used Brown Sugar, and added a couple Kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, galangal, cinnamon bark, and a half cup of Grapefruit juice. I removed the Kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, galangal, and cinnamon after simmering for an hour, then ran it through the food processor for a few seconds to reduce the size of the mango chunks. Used it to garnish a rack of lamb.
