Preservative free mango jam….
1 kilo ripe mango
1 kilo sugar
2 drops yellow colour (optional)
¼ cup water
Peel the skin and chop mangoes to small pieces.
Add the mangoes and water in a large pan and cook till the mangoes are soft and mushy.
Crush them (use a potato masher or blender) and add sugar.
Keep stirring on medium flame till it reaches a ‘jam’ consistency.
To test if the jam is ready, drop a small amount in a glass of water. If it drops in one piece, it’s time to take off fire. If it dissolves, keep stirring for a few more minutes.
Discard cloves and transfer to clean glass jars.
Store in refrigerator.
