Very similar to the Mango Chutney enjoyed with British style meat curries. But this one won't wreck your diabetic meal plan.


Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1/4 cup Sugar-free apricot preserves; - I used Polaner brand
2 teaspoons Cider Vinegar; - to taste
1/4 teaspoon Chili powder; - to taste
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; - ground
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder; - or 1 small clove fresh, mashed
1/8 teaspoon ginger; - or fresh, minced
1 ounce Fresh mango; - optional, fine diced

Original recipe makes 8

Servings  

Preparation

Over low heat (or in a double boiler) combine all ingredients. Allow to cook for at least 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Allow to cool a bit then taste and adjust spices as desired.

I added a slice of mango that I had on hand, so the batch was Mango chutney. Other fruits and preserve flavors may be used to suit your tastes and availability.

Notes

We like this version better than the bottled (high carb) version and it doesn't raise my blood glucose levels.

Hmmm. Our dietician tells us that the 'net carbs' idea (deducting fiber grams from total carbs for a 'net' carb count) is only for the Atkins and similar diet plans, not diabetics. While even the total carbs in this recipe are low for the serving amount, I would caution against any diabetic relying on 'net carbs' without checking with a diabetic counselor first.
