Mango Jam is an easy-to-make spread perfect for freshly buttered toast. Make this deliciously sweet and tangy jam with fresh mangoes along with apple, sugar and lemon juice in about 30 minutes at home.
Store bought jams are made with the addition of pectin for thickening, but jam can be made with just fresh fruit, sugar and lemon juice.
Pectin is a naturally occurring substance that makes jellies gel and gives jams their spread consistency. Apples contain a particularly high amount of pectin which helps jam to set. Pectin is available in the skin and pulp of fresh apples.
Make this delicious jam and keep it handy in the refrigerator, to enjoy with toast and tea.
