Most chutneys are best left for a few months in a dark cupboard to mature before using (I leave mine 6mths).
As for the lids - if the lids have a 'plastic' lining on the inside of the metal then they are fine. If they are straight metal - don't use or cover your chutney with something else first as the vinegar in the chutney will react with the metal causing rust & a poor seal.

Just realised I'm at work ... not my user name - I'm actually winnie231.
Your mayo jars will have the plastic lining I think.
Good luck with your chutney!
