The great thing about this jam is you don't have to have super fresh mangoes. It even works with green mangoes.


Serves: 24 

  • 1 kg mangoes
  • 1 1/2 cups (375g) white sugar
  • 3/4 cup (190ml) water
  • 3 saffron threads

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

  1. Boil, steam or microwave the whole mangoes until soft. Cool then remove the peel and seed. Place the mango pulp in a large bowl. Use a fork or potato masher to mash the pulp well.
  2. Place the sugar and water in a large saucepan over low heat; stir mixture and bring to a boil. When mixture begins boiling increase heat to medium-high. Continue boiling until fine, soft threads form (135 degrees C if using a sugar thermometer).
  3. Stir in the mango pulp and add the saffron threads (if desired) then boil until the mixture thickens; about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour cooked jam into sterilised jars and seal according to directions.
