Monkeypod Jam | Mango Chutney
The main difference between jam and chutney: chutney is savory instead of sweet, slow cooked fruit combined with vinegar and spices. This Indian-inspired Mango Chutney from Monkeypod Jam is made to compliment other dishes such as curries, lamb recipes, as an addition to charcuterie boards or spread on a samosa. Monkeypod Jam uses only local mangos and is committed to sustainable sourcing and exemplary preserving standards.
Monkeypod Jam wants to ensure that none of Kauaʻi’s fruit goes to waste. Dedicated to the Kauaʻi agricultural community, they have partnered with 25 local farmers to preserve the exotic flavors of Hawaiʻi’s tropical fruits. As supremely flavorful fruit and green farming practices go hand-in-hand, Monkeypod Jam is also committed to sustainable cultivation, making these preserves conscientiously produced from farm to jar.
Meet the Makers
What does a Kauaʻi schoolteacher do when placed on furlough? If you’re Aletha Thomas, you make jams and jellies with ripe, local fruit. A true master preserver, she uses a wide copper pot which heats fruits quickly to capture them at ideal freshness for the brightest flavors. Mindful of the roots of her artisanal preserves, she is dedicated to using only Kauaʻi-grown fruit from sustainable farms.
