This is the only mango chutney I know, Been eating it all my life and have started making it for myself over the past year or so. It is the goods.

12 x 1/2 Ripe Bowen Mangoes
1kg White Sugar
600ml Quality Brown Vinegar
1 Dessert Spoon Salt
6 Whole Cloves
6 Birdseye Chillies
Handful Sultanas
1 Table Spoon Ground Spice
2 Cloves Garlic
2 Medium Onions
30gms Ground Ginger

Makes about 6 - 8 jars

Peel and chop all the flesh off mangoes, Finely Dice onions, chop chillies in half, mince garlic, grate ginger and throw all ingredients into a large pot. Fast simmer uncovered for an hour or so then reduce heat to a slow simmer for about 3 to 4 hours stirring occasionally until it has reduced by half. Towards the end pick all the chillies out as you see them. Cool and bottle.

This batch is x3 and a bit, Testing out my new crab cooker. Its a bit of overkill.

I thought this sounded good Jono so I went to a mates place to pick a few boxes of Mangoes. They are so thick  here at the moment, like fleas on a robbers dog.

...

Most are ending up on the ground rotting

...


It was very hot today so I needed something to freshen me up a bit so spent some time in his orchard scoffing Lychees.

...

Didn't bother with Passionfruit as I couldn't fit 'em in.

Nice one Skip.

Certainly looks like a well kept orchard, Is he one of those perfectionist types?

Lychee's are cranking.

Yeah mate she's well kept alright. The Mango's are growing wild but are the stringless variety.  The Passionfruit & Avocado's etc are maintained the same way. I reckon if I have room I'll bring a few cartons of mixed tropical fruits with me to Hedlow, how do you reckon it would go with the crabs??

Should be the goods chilled on the hot days. Plenty of mates growing pineapples at the minute as well or could take a quick trip into Yeppoon & pick some up from Valley!

Mate when you refer to a fast simmer in the recipe what does that actually mean?

A few Cartons Of "Mixed Tropical Fruits" eh, Sounds good to me mate, Nothin like hooking into a nearly frozen mango on a hot day.

As for the fast simmer, I don't really know what that is (thats how it was writen in the recipe). Just boil it. Then reduce the heat right down to really slow. (Don't let it stick)

Hey Jono have just been eying of the crab cooker, is that one Stainless & if yes how many litres is the unit?

Also mate does that unit come with a drainable basket in it.

If all these answers are yes then I need to know where & how much.

I have been looking at these but not as keen on the aluminium ones as Stainless

Hey Skip

It is a Stainless job. 60 Litre. I just had to fill it up with water to measure it and the handles seem to handle the max weight fine. It only comes with the lid, The lid seems to be rather light weight compared to the pot.

I guess you could get a basket made for it.

I brought it at Army Disposels, Rocky. They had about three different sizes, this was the largest. $85.

They also had the aluminium one sitting next to this one on the shelf $80

Cheers
Jono
