Mango Tango Chutney Dance...

There are food blogs I enjoy perusing whose authors often give interesting stories to go along with their recipe posts...
I haven't got that kind of talent

I can offer a recipe...
shall we mango tango?

If you are blessed with mangoes in your area...
you can do more than just eat them.
I love a good mango.
Ceylons, pictured above on the plate...
are my all time favorite mango.
They have a very sweet, juicy, honey & flower taste to them...
and they look great piled on a plate.
 Their skin is often in lovely colors from light to hot pinks and honey yellow.
When our crops spring up with peppers, corn and other such eatables with an almost overwhelming harvest...
I rack my brain to see how many recipes I can use...
or make up on my own.

I use this chutney for grilled fish or chicken.
If you have no mangoes, you can substitute pineapple - fresh or canned.
You will also need:
4 to 6 small sweet peppers (you can use 1 bell pepper)
3 or 4 scallions
1 sweet, tender corn
2 to 3 cloves of garlic
3 Tbsp of coconut oil
1 Tbsp honey
2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
dash of salt and pepper

Cut the kernels off the corn cob...
and dice the scallions, garlic, and pepper

Take the mango and cut alongside the seed on both sides...

Carefully, slice into the mango into small squares...
carefully...avoid slicing through the skin...including yours

Turn the mango skin out and cut the pieces off the skin

Combine all the fruit and veggies together in a bowl.
At this point, you can decide whether you want the chutney raw or cooked. If you would rather have it cooked, just saute the fruit and veggies together in a little oil or butter and cook for no more than two minutes (or it will just be mush).
Combine the oil, honey and cider vinegar and blend together well...
add the salt & black pepper

Mix it into the chutney and that is all there is to it.

"For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness
and righteousness and truth;
proving what is pleasing to the Lord."
Ephesians 5: 9-10
(from the Greek text)

May you find grace in the Lord and be filled with the fruit of the Spirit.


  1. I know that no one in this house would eat this dish except for me and that works out perfect for for Mom!...This would go great as a side dish...Thanks for posting

  2. This looks like a very tasty dish. It's different from what I choose to cook in my home, but I just might be tempted to try it. :)

  3. I will omit the corn, but everything else - just delicious! :)

    Embrace His blessings,

  4. We don't grow the mango in our area but they are at all of our grocery stores. This looks so pretty and very refreshing. I don't have coconut oil but I have it on my 'need to start buying' list. Pretty photos.

  5. I love your mango tango ideas. We seem to be able to buy mango's in our local markets almost year around. I guess that's because we are only about 100 miles from Mexico.

  6. What you think you lack in creative story telling you completely make up for in step by step photo tutorials. I loved the clarity of your instructions and the wonderful pictures.

    This looks delicious, and although mangoes are not prolific here, I certainly buy them anyway because they are so delicious. My husband is a Salmon fisherman and mango chutney would be divine with it!

    Blessings, Debbie

  7. Mango tango away, that looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'll have to try this sometime, I like the different flavors you combined, sweet w/ vinegar. I bet this is very refreshing!
