This is a great tasting jam made with seasonal tropical produce. I did need to add some pectin as this jam did not want to set properly but it did not need much at all. A keeper for mango season!
Very Nice Jam :-) ...I did a slight modification. I used 8 cups of fruit to the 3 cups of sugar, Lime Juice from 1 whole lime. This cooks down very well and it is still very sweet. You definitely need to stay with the mixture while it cooks down or will stick to the bottom of the pan. This is still super sweet even with the additional lime and fruit. I would make again, but definitely decrease the sugar. Just wanted to Add an update.... This Jam recipe just won a second place ribbon for me at our local county fair1
Really yummy and very easy to make. WAY too much sugar, though, even after I cut the amount in 1/2. I have a Chocolate Mint plant so I added about 3 Tbsp of fresh mint. We got five 12 oz canning jars worth of lovely, tasty jam.
Just finished making this. Yum, it is so good. I will be making this every year from now on. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe:)
What a lovely combination! However, my rating is only based on the combination and ratio of the fruits, not on the sugar. I didn't measure the sugar in cups, but weighed the amount of fruits and used the same amount of a special sugar that contains pectin (this sugar is called Gelierzucker in Switzerland). This is the way the Swiss generally make jam: one amount of sugar to the same amount of Gelierzucker. I then stirred the jam until it jellied. As it was to sweet for me, I added some water and cooked the jam again. I forgot to add the lime juice to my first batch, but used a generous amount (maybe too generous) in the second batch. It is funny how one ingredient (lime juice) can make such a difference. Both jams are yummy, but they differ in taste quite a lot. The one without lime juice tastes much sweeter, though. Maybe a little bit too sweet. Anyway, I love both jams and will use them as presents at Christmas.
Yummy jam...easy to make.
this is an excellent recipe!! the color of the jam is very good, and I would recommend this to anyone with access to tropical fruits! I will be making this to go in gift baskets.
