Sugar-free-mango-chutneyIt’s tasty, it’s healthy and it’s incredibly more-ish. Jane Wrigglesworth makes a sweet mango chutney with no sugar.

I’ve been growing stevia (the sugar herb) for a few years now and using the powdered leaf in many of my recipes. The compounds within the leaf are 200-300 times sweeter than sugar and have no calories.

If you can’t have sugar, or you simply want to cut it out, this tasty chutney might be just right for you. It’s delicious with cheese and crackers, or serve it with cold meats.

How to grow your own stevia

Sugar-free mango chutney

500g mango flesh
400g tomatoes, peeled and chopped (can use tinned tomatoes)
2 onions, chopped
½ cup raisins
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon raw stevia powder (the green powder, not the white refined powder)
1 ½ cups apple cider vinegar (can use malt vinegar)
½ cup lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together in a non-aluminium bowl. Stand for 12 hours, stirring occasionally. Pour into a stainless steel saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until thick (1 – 1 ½ hours). Pour into sterilised jars.

    Hi Jane – I’m just quoting you here –
    “I’ve been growing stevia (the sugar herb) for a few years now and using the powdered leaf in many of my recipes”
    I would love to know how you go about powdering your Stevia leaf for use in this recipe? I too have been growng my own, and, although I have googled it quite a bit, everything looks very complex. Have you powdered your own garden-grown Stevia with success? Would love to know how to do that, so that I could have a go at your great recipe. I have not checked the price of Stevia powder, but am sure it’s not cheap either! Thanks Jane!

    • Hi Steph
      Yes, stevia is expensive in the shops. That’s one of the reasons I like to grow my own. The other is that I can be certain there are no pesticides and no fillers in the mix (which does happen with the white powdered stevia). I have used a mortar and pestle to great effect, but lately I have been using a spice grinder, which works well too. Make sure you remove the stems first. I have added a link in the article above on basic growing conditions of stevia as well. Good luck!
