I became fascinated with chutney a few weeks ago when I was watching a cooking show. Salsa and chutney were being used interchangeably and I found myself being frustrated that the terms were blurred. Then I realized I couldn’t successfully explain the difference, so I went on a chutney binge for a week. For me, chutney is heated, usually with some kind of fruit, and with spices you would use in the fall. For me, salsa is fresh, usually with basic ingredients, and with minimal spices and no fruit…otherwise it’s a raw chutney. These are just my simplified definitions feel free to use your own.
This mango chutney is a version of Jamie Oliver’s Cheeky Chili Chutney. I modified it using what I had (for some reason I was out of cinnamon sticks, so I just used ground cinnamon). I used this atop cream cheese as a dip, and then on meat. Now It’s gone and I need to make more soon. I think it will be a staple.
