MANGO JAM

Photobucket


Ahhh almost finished my raw mango recipes for this year. Raw mangoes are turned in to ripe sweet fruit so now they are in very sweet taste. If they are any raw mangoes in the market they don't taste sour but little sweet taste will be there. this sweet and sour taste mangoes are not perfect for pickles and chutneys. This sweet and sour mangoes are good for Salsa,salads and some curries but not for pickles and jams.For jam we have to use fully ripe mangoes, that gives a better taste to jam.But some people use half ripe mangoes also for jam... Who don't like jam spread on a crisp toast for break fast? Jam is my all time favorite with bread toast or a chapati or roti, that too if it is a mango jam thats it yummmm.
Mango pulp -- peal mango and cut in to bite size pieces and make pulp in a blander add 1 tab sp water if require(better make pulp without water).

INGREDIENTS:----
Mango pulp --- 2 1/2 cups

Sugar --- 200 gms
Cloves -- 4
Cinnamon powder --1/2 tea sp
Citric acid ---- 1/4 tea sp or
lemon juice -- 1 tab sp
METHOD:---
1.Take mango pulp, sugar, cloves in to a thick bottom pan and start cooking, bring to a full boil and reduce the flame, keep string.
2. cook this mixture in a low flame till the mixture become thick, means if you drop a little jam on a plate that should not spread.(this will take 20 to 25 minutes time)
3. In this stage add lemon juice or if you like to add citric acid then mix 1/4 tea sp citric acid to 1/4 cup of hot water and add this citric acid mixture, cinnamon powder mix well to combine every thing.
4. Remove from heat and let it cool then pour mango jam in to sterilized glass jar, seal when it is completely cool.

Remove cloves before you pour the jam in to jar.

Keep this jam in fridge because I didn't use any preserves I used lemon juice if you want to keep this for long time then you can add preserves so that jam will stay for long time.
Like pickles don't use a wet spoon to scoup out the jam always use a clean and dry spoon.
If you like can add a pinch of yellow food color for more bright color.
