Mango Ketchup Recipe

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Mangos and spices cook down into an easy ketchup with no tomatoes. It makes a great condiment to serve with pork, seafood, and poultry. The ketchup needs to stand overnight to let the flavors blend before using.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


  • 4 medium mangos
  • 2 ounces vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 whole clove


Peel the mangoes and discard the center pit. Remove pulp and puree in food processor or blender. Add vinegar, ginger, cinnamon, salt, sugar, wine, allspice, cayenne pepper, and clove. Puree until well combined.

In heavy saucepan over low heat, cook mixture until reduced and thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Strain mixture through fine sieve. Refrigerate overnight to allow flavors to meld.

Yield: About 3 cups

Chef's Notes: Peel mango, using very sharp knife as if it were a potato. Lay the fruit flat on counter and slice lengthwise above and underneath the large seed. Trim off any fruit remaining on seed. Discard seed and skin.

Mango ketchup recipe, Member Jatrayne

It was scrumptious. I made half the recipe though as I'm the only one to eat it. I loved it on my baked Cornish game hen...used it on the chicken as a marinade. Delicious. The next day I used it on what was left of the game hen, and used it in place of tomato ketchup...stupendous! Go out for some mangoes--they're on sale this week. Also. if you live along the I-5 corridor (n WA to S. CA for those who don't know) and visit your local TJ's--they have Mango salsa and Pineapple salsa...it'll give a somewhat blander flavor than this recipe, but taste their products to give you an idea of what the Mango ketchup will sort of taste like. I don't know about the rest of you, that even though I like trying new things, if I'm making something myself, I like to know what it might be like as the finished products. ENJOY! J
