Chutneys are becoming quite popular throughout the United States. Chutney is a spicy condiment usually containing fruit, vinegar, sugar and spices. Varying in texture and "heat," chutneys are easy to make and can be served with grilled lean red meats, poultry and fish. Sweeter chutneys also make a delightful spread for toast or can accompany cheese and crackers as an appetizer.
Following a healthful lifestyle includes choosing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables every day. To make getting as much variety as possible easy, we recommend using The 5 A Day Color Way Guide. It divides fruits and vegetables into 5 color groups: blue/purple, green, white, yellow/orange and red. Your goal is to eat fruits and vegetables from all the groups and a wide variety from within each group-every day! Keep in mind what's considered a serving, since you will be aiming for 5 to 9 servings a day. One medium sized fruit; 1/2 cup raw, cooked, frozen or canned fruits (in 100% juice) or vegetables; 3/4 cup 100% fruit or vegetable juice; 1/2 cup cooked, canned, or frozen legumes (beans and peas), 1 cup raw, leafy vegetables, or 1/4 cup dried fruit are examples of what equals one serving.
Combine all ingredients. Chill at least 2 hours.
