Mango Jam

Mango Jam - Preservative free - Home Made

Mango Jam - A very simple, quick and easy homemade jam. My mom introduced me to homemade jam's. She has been preparing this preservative free Pineapple Jam for me and my younger brother ever since our childhood. I have kept her trend going for my kids too now. This year, I gave a try on mango jam and it was a super hit at home. It's super easy to prepare at home and I bet you won't buy those branded products available in market. That was the actual feedback I got from my family. It was so delightful to watch my hubby and father to have it directly with a spoon without even waiting for a bread slice or chapati's.  A must try recipe this Mango season.


Ripe mangoes - 2 ( I used Mallika mangoes from Bangalore)

Sugar - 1 and 1/2 cup

Lemon juice - 1 tbsp

Mango Jam - Preservative free - Home Made


1. Puree the mango slices in the blender.

2. Take mango puree, sugar and lemon juice in a wide pan and cook it in medium to high flame. Once sugar dissolves, it starts to bubble up. Reduce the flame to low to medium flame and cook further with constant stirring.

3. Cook till the mixture starts to thicken and you get the right consistency. This takes about 10 minutes. 

4 To test the right consistency. Take half bowl of water and drop some jam in it. If the jam settles down the bowl, it indicates the jam is ready else cook for another 3 - 4 minutes and check again.

5. Once done, switch off the flame and let it cool completely. Jam thickens more after cooling.

Transfer it to a clean air- tight container and store it in a refrigerator. Enjoy with bread slices or chapati's or even dosa's.

Note: You can also add in some cardamom powder if you like.

Lemon juice helps to crystallize the sugar.

Sugar quantity depends upon your tastebuds and the sweetness of the mangoes you are using to prepare this jam.
