Spicy Mango Chutney

  • 15 whole cloves
  • 15 whole pink peppercorns
  • ⅔ cup white vinegar
  • 1 large red onion, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 1½ teaspoons coarse salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated lime zest
  • ⅔ cup freshly squeezed lime juice, (about 4 limes)
  • 7 mangos, (7½ pounds) peeled, pitted, and cut into ½-inch chunks
  1. Cut a 4-inch square of cheesecloth. Place cloves and peppercorns in the center, and form a bundle; secure with kitchen twine. Place bundle in a low-sided, six-quart saucepan. Add vinegar, red onion, crushed red-pepper flakes, salt, and sugar. Set over medium-high heat, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low, and simmer mixture 15 minutes.
  2. Add ginger, lime zest, lime juice, and mangos; combine. Continue cooking until mangos begin to soften and liquid has thickened, about 40 minutes. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Transfer chutney immediately to jars. Alternatively, transfer to a large bowl set over an ice bath to chill; store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to 4 weeks.

Makes 6 half-pint jars.
