Mango and Cherry Chutney

According to Barron's Food Lover's Companion a Chutney is...

[CHUHT-nee] From the East Indian word chatni, this spicy condiment contains fruit, vinegar, sugar and spices. It can range in texture from chunky to smooth and in degrees of spiciness from mild to hot. Chutney is a delicious accompaniment to curried dishes. The sweeter chutneys also make interesting bread spreads and are delicious served with cheese.

I am sorry but I don't have exact measurements on this... I made it up on the spot at work and tried it and adjusted as I went but here are the basic ingredients.

*   mango, peeled and seeded and chopped roughly
*   dried cherries chopped
*   brown rice vinegar
*   water
*   chopped onion
*   minced garlic
*   cumin/coriander
*   salt and pepper to taste

I would have liked to add some kind of nut but we chose not to due to how we used it.

mix everything together and cook until liquid is reduced and thickened.

This is an item that should have a little sweet, savory, salty, spicy and if nuts are added you get a little crunch, too.

Serve on top of whatever you like!  YUM!!!
