This past month I visited my aunt in New York City where she gave me the gift of a visit to Spice Market, a restaurant specializing in Asian cuisine. It was there that I had my first ever mango chutney and I have yet to stop thinking about it since. I knew I couldn’t recreate it so I figured I would do the next best thing: put my own spin on it.

This Mango-Apple Chutney is beyond easy now that I know how to actually peel mangoes. It also features apple cider vinegar which has a myriad of health benefits. For real, ACV is the With just a little effort, you can take your boring AF chicken breast, tofu, pork, etc. from a 1 to a 10.
