About this recipe: Mango jam can be made with any variety of mangoes. Semi-ripe mangoes work best, but either raw or ripe mangoes may be used.


Serves: 24 

  • 1kg ripe mangoes
  • 300g sugar
  • 180ml water
  • 3 saffron threads (optional)

This was the runniest jam iv'e ever seen, the consistency was all over the place but I must say the taste was the best thing and that was only OK. It was very watery with hardly any taste of mango. It was a very heavy jam. The texture of this jam was extremely lumpy and when it wasn't lumpy it was very thin and watery - 25 Apr 2016
