I lOVE mangos. Last year I decided I wanted to make some mango freezer jam, and I searched high and low for a recipe that just used mangos. I couldn’t find one, so I ended up creating one. This year the box of pectin I bought had a recipe in it. I made that recipe and it worked out just as awesome as it did last year. Freezer jam is super yummy, super fast and super easy. You'll need
1 box of pectin
3/4 cup of water
*5 cups of sugar
3 cups of smashed mango pulp. (about 4 medium)
1/4 cup of lemon juice.
Measure exact amount of mango pulp in a large bowl, add lemon juice and exact amount of sugar. Mix and let sit for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally . After 10 min, in a small sauce pan mix the box of pectin with 3/4 cup of water, bring to a boil over high heat. Boil hard for 1 minute. Poor pectin into fruit mixture and stir until all the sugar is dissolved about 3 min. Poor into clean freezer containers and let sit on the counter for 24 hours. Then place them in your freezer for up to a year or in your refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
The fruit mixture
I ended up with 6 of these little guys
plus and extra 2 cups.
Next I’m making strawberry/mango, and then strawberry/raspberry. YUM!
