Where to buy stuff

Postby jonbar.1 » Fri Sep 17, 2021 9:48 am

I'm looking for a couple of items:

1) Large oven bags.They are for lining the slow cooker.
(Have previously ordered from Amazon, but getting a bit pricey.)
2) Mango chutney: without the lumps of mango.
Please don't "suggest trying somewhere".Please tell me where you know I can definitely buy them.I'd rather buy from Amazon than go hunting around For them. :thumbup:


Anywhere between Nerja & Torre would be good.
Thankyou so much. JB

Eroski in El Ingenio used to have bags, not been for a while.
They might have smooth Mango too in the international food department.

Any of those any good? Not sure I've had it without chunks as I think they're the best bit!

No Wicksey.Russells are lumps only.....yuck!
Oddly enough I love mangoes to eat; I just like spreadable chutney.
I'm the same with lumps of strawberries in jam.
Nothing worse than a jam-buttie with humps! :wink:

:lol: I'm the opposite. I hate the smooth stuff and like the chunky bits. You may well have to order online then as I imagine it's quite hard to source locally.

Go to any of the local Indian restaurants and see where they buy theirs. It’s usually horribly thin with no lumps. I don’t understand why all the restaurants serve such slop.

That's a good idea Lucky Jim.
I'm happy to eat normal mango-chutney but,for smearing onto the chicken or ham sarnie it has to be spreadable....sad; I know!

Mango chutney is so easy to make, even I can do it. Far nicer than the industrial waste garbage that Indian restaurants serve, and of course no preservatives or generally nasty stuff that commercial chutney contains.

Make it lumpy, make it smooth, up to you. Personally i like soft chunks in thete.

Cheers Bob
I'm not into home-made chutneys.Never tasted one which was any better than the brands.
I'm far too lazy!
( I used to make my own gazpacho until I realised the cartons from Mercadona were better)

You haven't tried my nectar from the Gods. You're in Torrox Costa right?
If you ever eat in Old Goa Melvin may still have a jar of mine in the fridge.. Tell him that you want to try Chilli Bob's mango chutney.

My marmalade is good but I can never make chutney. Followed friends' tried and trusted recipes that have been delicious, but my mango chutney tastes fine but just went dry. So it's all chunks and nothing else. Certainly not for anyone who hates lumps in their chutney
