MAJOR GRAY'S ARMY CHUTNEY

25 firm green mangoes just turning yellow
3 pounds brown sugar
2 small hot onions, chopped fine
5 tablespoons coarse salt
1/4 cup small chunks of fresh green gingerroot
1 small garlic clove, mashed
1 1/2 cups seeded raisins
1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons allspice berries
4 1/2 Cups wine vinegar, or more
1 tablespoon dried small red chilies
2 tablespoons preserved gingerroot
1/2 cup almonds, slivered
1/2 cup dried currants

Peel the mangoes and cut them into 1/2 -inch segments. Sprinkle
well with the coarse salt and let stand overnight. Wash off the
salt in the morning. Boil the green gingerroot in water for 30
minutes, then drain. Tie the spices in a muslin bag large enough
to allow swelling. Put the vinegar in a heavy kettle and add the
spice bag, sugar and drained gingerroot. Simmer gently for 30
minutes, stirring often. Add the onions, garlic, raisins, currants
and chilies. Add half of the mangoes and simmer for 2 hours, stirring
and watching carefully. Add the almonds and preserved gingerroot
and the rest of the mangoes. Simmer for another 2 hours, or until
the mixture is as thick as jam. Remove the spice bag. Arrange the
fruit and other ingredients in a tasteful manner in hot sterilized
jars, with almonds and raisins showing through the glass. Seal.
Stand in a cool place for several weeks before using. This chutney
can be kept for years.
