Homemade Mango Jam Recipe

------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

Is it not amazing that you can pretty much take any of your favorite fruits and turn it into jam? I have made homemade orange jam, homemade raspberry jam and homemade strawberry peach freezer jam. I really enjoy trying out new jam recipes, this summer I tried out the homemade mango jam recipe.

This recipe calls for only 3 ingredients, that includes the mangoes. Also since it is homemade, you will not be adding any preservatives, which will make it way healthier than the store bought version. I also like that you can choose to use one type of mango or you can mix and match different types. Preparation time is about 10 minutes and cooking time is an additional 30 minutes.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • fresh mangoes
  • lemons
  • sugar
  • large pot
  • canning jars

Some mango varieties produce fruit with strings, the best type of mango to use for this jam is one without or with very little strings. You can also choose to use whole mangoes or remove the core. Some people like the added flavor the core provides. Peel your mangoes and lemons before adding to the large pot.

Add the lemon peel too, and then cover with the sugar. The more sugar and lemon you use, the longer you can preserve your jam. Place on low heat and stir everything for about 30 minutes or until a rolling boil is achieved. At which time you will know the jam is ready if you place a small amount on a small plate and it remains thick instead of runny.

Before canning make sure you jars are sterilized. Adding a few drops of alcohol to the lid also helps to disinfect it. Pack your jam into the jars, screw on the lids and turn them upside down to cool for a few hours. Store your jam in a cool dry place in colder climates or in your fridge in warmer areas.
