Before I tell you all about this glorious sweet and spicy Mango Apple Chutney, let’s talk about chutney memories for a second.

What does the word chutney evoke in you? In my mind, chutney is totally attached to my father. He loves to cook and is always very creative in the kitchen. And he loves grocery shopping. You can definitively tell I’m his daughter.

My father and I are the only people I know, who love going to the grocery store. We love spending hours scanning the shelves, comparing different products, trying out new things. Well, at least in theory, when we have time. And as far as I’m concerned, this isn’t often the case.

Chutney? Right. So I discovered chutney when I was a kid. My father made us some one day and I remember thinking it was delicious and elegant (that wasn’t probably my exact words, but you get the idea).

I don’t know exactly what kind of chutney it was but still, I remember the sweet and sour taste.

It was only recently though that I started making my own chutneys from scratch, starting with this fig chutney. In France, we eat some especially for Christmas, as a spread with foie gras (basically it’s a goose or duck liver pâté, but truth is, it’s so much more than a simple pâté…! and definitively not as disgusting as it sounds).

Anyway, I love chutneys because they’re sweet, yet savoury and loaded with spices like cloves, nutmeg and…cinnamon. Bingo!

This Mango Apple Chutney is an adapted version of my fig chutney recipe. I think it’s pretty good because Solal ate it by the spoonful. Wanna try for yourself?

  1. Coucou,
    Après avoir lu ton texte, il fallait que je soulève un point !! 😉 Tu es sûre que la 1ère fois que tu en a mangé c’était avec papa et non avec Chantal ?? Pour moi, la chutney est carrément associée à elle… En tout cas, c’est grâce à elle que je l’aie découverte. Et finalement, je n’aime pas trop… 😉
    En tout cas, très jolies photos
    Des bisous

    1. Ah bah ça y est finalement tu as trouvé les commentaires! 😉
      Oui, certaine, je me souviens très bien, c’était dans la cuisine des ursulines. Je pense que ma mère a découvert le chutney aussi à ce moment là et peut être que du coup elle en a refait par la suite. En tout cas, je n’ai aucun souvenir de chutney avec elle. C’est marrant comme nos souvenirs peuvent être totalement différents..!
      Merci pour les photos 🙂 Bisous

  2. Saluuut,
    Je pense l’essayer très vite, j’ai une mangue sous la main! Je me demandais juste si une Granny Smith ferait l’affaire?
