Mango-Lime Jam

More mangoes from my friend! Made this delicious Mango-Lime Jam. It is not too sweet, well I did reduce the sugar! If you have some extra ripe mangoes around, this would be a lovely jam to make. 


This is fairly simple and quick to make. Just make sure you wear your kitchen gloves when stirring, and use a ladle with a long handle, as with most jams, as it boils, it will pop and imagine the hot jam landed on your skin, you would not want that! Ouch!



I love my jam a little runny, it will set further as it cools.


Guess where this spoonful of delicious jam ended up after this and ....


.... this photos are taken?  Hehehe ! :)  Yummilicious!


Yield : 3 bottles of 250ml size. One for my friend, one for my toast, and .....


...... I've used up the third jar for the Orange Mille Crepe in my previous post.  :o)
I made this jam about a month ago actually, and my jar that I reserved for toast has already finished!


I'm sharing this with



Mango-Lime Jam
(adapted from "The Joy of Jam, Jellies and Other Sweet Preserves" by Linda Ziedrich)
Makes about 2 pints
2 pounds peeled and cubed mango
1/2 cup lime juice 
2-3/4 cups sugar

  1. Put the mango cubes and lime juice into a preserving pan. Stirring often, simmer until the mango is tender. Remove the pan from the heat and mash the mango lightly with a potato masher.
  2. Add the sugar to the pan. Over medium heat, stir until the sugar is dissolved. Raise the heat to medium-high and boil the jam until a drop mounds in a chilled dish.
  3. Ladle the jam into pint or half-pint mason jars. Add lids and rings, and process the jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

kitchen flavour's notes:
  • For the lime juice, I use slightly less than 1/2 cup, about 2 tablespoons less.
  • For the sugar, I only use 1-1/4 cup, as I do not like my jam overly sweet. Even with this lesser amount of sugar, the jam sets rather well. Sugar is a form of preservative, but since I do not intend to keep this jam for long, so this is fine with me.

  2. The mango-lime jam looks really, really good. I have 2 fruiting mango trees but they are still young so I don't get many mangoes. Further more, there are people who help themselves to the fruits. Mango jam may only be possible when the trees triple in size. After seeing your photos, I am inspired to fertilize the trees regularly to speed up the growth. :)

  14. OH - MY - GOSH. I want some of this for my toast tomorrow morning!! Mangoes are not grown in New Zealand at all, so what we get is always imported and a bit of a luxury - often imported from Mexico and about $4 per mango. However, because it is mango season in Australia right now, we are getting a lot of mangoes here right now for $1 each. Still expensive really, but I think I may have to splash out and give this a try. I know I would love it.

    Thanks so much, Joyce, for sharing this at Cookbook Sundays.

  27. French restaurant menus offer a wide variety of high quality wines from California and France to complement the creations coming out of the kitchen. French restaurant menus understand that the robust, hearty or nutty taste of a wine can enhance the flavors of French restaurant menus's culinary concoctions.
