I think this is the recipe I remember the most from my grandma. It is not because I love it, or because it is my favorite dish, it is because the first time I heard the word chutney, it stuck with me forever. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because it sounds kind of funny CHOO-t-nee (pronounced in Spanish). Anyways, this is one of those recipes Tata used to prepare for her card game day with “Las Viejas”. It is a not-so-guilty pleasure if you love mago.

The name makes it sound as a very sophisticated plate, but it is super easy to prepare, but plan ahead because you need to serve it the next day after prepared. This is what you have to do:

Peel the mangoes.

Grind the garlic and add ½ of the vinegar. Once you got it mixed altogether, add the mangos.

Cut the raisins and the dates, put them together in a bowl and add the remaining of the vinegar. Let sit for two hours. Then, add the mangoes and let sit for 24 hours.

The next day, take out some of the liquid and add the sugar, salt, and ginger. You can either serve in glass containers or save it in the fridge also in a glass mason jar.

Tata recommended to eat it a few days after preparation, it does acquire more taste, but 24 hours is fine as well.
