Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, minced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups roughly chopped peeled fresh mango, about 2 medium magnos
  • 1 cup mango juice
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons fresh juice from about 2 limes
  • 1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped habanero chiles, seeded (about 2 chilis, see note above)
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Procedures

  1. 1

    Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  2. 2

    Stir in mangoes, mango juice, tomato sauce, brown sugar, honey, vinegar, molasses, lime juice, Worcestershire, mustard, habanero, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer until mangos have completely softened and sauce has slightly thickened, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. 3

    Puree sauce with an immersion blender, or in the jar of a regular blender, until smooth. Let cool to room temperature, transfer to a jar and store in refrigerator for up to a month.
