  • 2 small or 1 large or 1 ½ cups Mangoes - roughly chopped
  • ½ inch Ginger
  • cup Light brown sugar
  • from ½ of the lemon or 1 teaspoon Lemon zest
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Lemon juice


making mango jam recipe:

  • Take chopped mangoes and ginger piece in a blender
  • Add light brown sugar. Blend it till everything is pureed and smooth.
  • Take this puree into a saucepan. Turn the heat on medium.
  • Add lemon zest and lemon juice.
  • Mix well and let it come to a boil or simmer. As the sugar melts, it will become thin and liquidy.
  • Keep stirring every 3-4 minutes and keep cooking.
  • After 10-12 minutes you can see it gets thick.
  • After 17-18 minutes, you will see the jam is leaving the sides of the pan and it is nice and thick, spreadable consistency (not runny).
  • Or you can check the doneness: Before you start making the jam, keep a small plate or bowl in the fridge to chill. When the jam is thick and ready, you can taste out. Add a drop of jam on the chilled plate and if it sets right away meaning jam is ready. It should not be runny or liquidy.
  • Remove the jam to a container/jar or bowl.
  • And let it cool completely before storing in the fridge.
