Mango Freezer Jam

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


The pectin


The jam.

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!
