“Mango Jam”

4 ingredients 20 minutes

Mango jam is one of my favorite and much loved  by family and friends. It’s so simple to make and tastes so sweet and delicious with hints of cardamom. It’s like a dose of sunshine in a bottle.

This mango  jam can be made with any variety of ripe mangoes. so choose your favourite variety of mango to make jam. I have tried with Pakistani mangoes now available in Male’ (Maldives). They are big, sweet and perfect for jam. It’s mango season in Australia so Kensington Pride mango is my favorite to use for jams.

So this jam is for all the mango fans out there, go on, make some jam and enjoy it with toast, crepes, waffles or my favorite way is to top generously on warm rotis. And of course share it with family and friends, they will surely love it.
