Mango Jam3
Mango season is in full swing here. When it comes to mangoes, i love to eat it as it is even without cutting the mangoes. Yes just wash it and eat it fullOpen-mouthed smile. So making recipes with mango is rare thing in my kitchen. To say it precise when i am saturated with eating mangoes i will make desserts with it. But this will never happen. I forcefully stop eating and make recipes for blog . One such recipe is Mango Jam, without any preservatives like pectin. This mango jam is a simple and easy recipe which you can try with simple 3 ingredients available at home in just 15 minutes. This mango jam turned out very well, and since i used the Alphonso Mango the color is dark. If use other variety colour will change.

Note:

  1. You can replace mangoes with strawberry too.
  2. I added 1/4 cup of sugar as the mangoes were too sweet. Adjust the sweetness according to the variety of mango you use.
  3. You can puree the mango and make jam to get a smooth consistency.

  1. Thanks, Jeyashri! If anyone is looking to make this jam with more than 2 mangoes, I used 3 cups of mango pulp, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 Tbsp lemon juice and 1 tsp lemon zest. It turned out great! Thanks for posting this low-sugar version.

  2. Hi jeyashri.
    I made this very jam with 750 GMs of mango. Just a few changes. Added nutmeg cardomom and cinnamon each 1 tsp. Plus used regular cooker without whistle. This way prevented the spurting. Since no whistle was used, I cud just open cooler ones every 15 min and stir. Its lovely. The lemon zest and lemon really add ZING to jam and gave a real gelatin texture to the jam. Just love it. Hope I can use same procedure for mixed fruit jam. Also I used my food processor to blend the full mango . Thus helped to make a spreadable consistency.
