Mango Jam

Jam can be made at home very easily. It is also healthier as we would not be adding in any preservatives into it. This is my mom's recipe and it is so delicious. The ingredients are also minimal and do give it a try in this mango season :)

  • Pulp of ripe mangoes - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4th to 1 cup depending on the sweetness of the mango
  • Liquid glucose - 1 Tsp
  • Citric acid - 1/2 Tsp (Optional)

Note: the ratio of mango pulp and sugar is 1:3/4 or 1:1, depending on the sweetness of the mango

  1. In a heavy bottomed pan, add the mango pulp and sugar and cook it on a low flame
  2. Keep stirring continuously till the mixture starts to thicken
  3. This will take about 20-25 minutes
  4. Now add the liquid glucose and citric acid (if adding) and stir for a minute
  5. Remove from fire and allow the jam to cool completely
  6. Store in air-tight containers or glass bottles and refrigerate them
  7. Enjoy yummy home made jam with bread/bun/roti or as you like it :)
