Mango Jam

After months of anticipation, I was finally able to satiate my wanting for mango royale. I have to say, the cake turned out great, with every bite as good as I expected. But since I had a few pieces of mangoes left after the cake, I thought I might as well bottle this luscious fruit to feed my future need. So I made mango jam! As I processed enough only for my personal enjoyment, I didn’t sterilize my jars but here is a link to check if you want more information regarding safe canning.

Increase heat to medium and continue to cook, skimming foam that floats to top, until mixture thickens. To check for doneness, use the “parting the sea” technique by transferring a teaspoonful onto a small dish and refrigerate for about 1 minute. Run your finger in the middle of jam. If it remains open and does not flow back together, it is ready.
