Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 25 mins | Total Time: 35 mins
Makes 1 ¼ cups (300ml), approximately 22 servings
2 cups diced mango around 1 ½ – 2 mangoes, 400g
½ cup sugar 100g
1 tbsp lime juice
½ lime zest ie from ½ lime
Instructions (From Caroline’s Cooking)
Dice the mango relatively small and put in a small saucepan with the other ingredients. Stir, bring to a boil and allow to simmer around 20-30 minutes until it thickens (you can test a small amount on a cold plate and check if it sets).
Can and store – use proper canning practices, sterilizing the jar, if you plan to keep for any length of time. If using immediately, you can use a clean but non-sterile jar/closed container and store in the fridge for around a week.
As noted above, try to avoid mango that has stringy flesh, or you may need to strain the mixture before storing. Use ripe but ideally not overripe fruit.
