Mango Jam / Homemade Mango Jam

Season of Mango is almost over! This mango season we had enough of Mangoes both raw and ripe. I used raw mangoes to prepare Mango chutney and Aam Panna. Though the mango season is coming to an end for this year, mango lovers  (like me) are really sad to say good bye to their favourite fruit. How is the idea if we can preserve the flavour of our favourite fruit for few more days. Yes you got me right I am talking about Mango Jam or Mango preserve.



I learnt to prepare mango jam from my mother who prepares every year in large batch which serves almost to the coming mango season. No preservative is added while preparing mango jam and stored in refrigerator, it remains as it is for long time. If you search vegetable shops there is possibility that you would get some raw mangoes and you can prepare and store this mango jam for few more months.

Mango Milkshake

I was going through yesterday's newspaper where it was mentioned pre-monsoon showers have already started and monsoon is coming on time. We, Bangloreans are experienced rains in the month of May which has started already. But other places of India is still feeling the impact of Summer heat wave. Even few days back Bangalore was too hot and it feels good when your better-half enters the kitchen on weekend and come out with the chilled glass of Mango Milkshake.


I think there are very few people in our country who does not relish mangoes. So our family is not an exception. He bought mangoes in bulk but before the vacation (yes I am on vacation :)) I was loaded with projects and could not find time to use those ripe mangoes. So he announced a day before that he is going to make a delicious mango milkshake next day. He often announces but sometimes he forgets to execute :P...But our daughter did a good follow up job so next day I relished the glassful of mango milkshake. In between I did another job, I told once the shake is ready call me I will pour and garnish them and click pics so that I can post them here as I knew my blog does not have the recipe of mango milkshake. I give the credit of mango milkshake recipe to my dear husband. Thank you Avijit!
