homemade mango chutneyMy favorite condiment to go with chicken or fish is mango chutney. The recipe below plus video demonstrates how to ferment this favorite dish so that probiotics and additional enzymes are added which boost nutrient absorption and digestibility. It’s much more effective than taking an enzyme pill!

Another way to serve fermented mango chutney is to spoon it directly on top of a salad of organic baby greens. The flavor is incredibly complex, both sour and sweet.

Fermented Mango Chutney

Mango chutney was the very first fermented condiment I ever tasted many years ago. My friend Della made it for a potluck at her home. I remember nearly falling over as it was so delicious and welcome on my stomach! From that point on, I was hooked on traditionally fermented foods. Your body literally cries out for these types of super nutrient dense, easily digested foods loaded with probiotics!

If you love mango, try this recipe for raspberry or mango lassi too.

I hope you try making it right away!

The video below shows how to make probiotic mango chutney yourself. Feel free to substitute pineapple or papaya for the mango if desired. A 50-50 mix of pineapple and mango cubes works very well together too.
