Mango Jam, or Gourmet Syrup, or Smoothie Flavoring
I've made all kinds of jam - strawberry jam is usually my summer project. I even have an amazing zucchini strawberry jam recipe. But, in this case, I turned to Allrecipes.com to see what was out there. Came across a really awesome sounding (and highly rated) recipe, which I decided to try. I cubed and steamed the mango, then used my food processor for mashing vice my potato ricer/masher. Cooked everything on the stove, and added a few extra things that the recipe didn't call for - lemon juice and pectin.
The end product was a little less thick than a semi-jellied texture, but it would be great to spread on top of peanut butter for PB&Js, heated up and used as syrup over pancakes or crepes, and I also think a few spoonfuls would make for an amazing mango smoothie. What am I going to do with so many of these cute little bottles? Ahhh, you're looking at Christmas gifts for my lovely neighbors.
Oh, and the link to the recipe Mango Jam! Enjoy!!
