Raw Mango Jam

I had got a good quantity of Raw mangoes to make various types of pickles... after cutting the mangoes into desired pieces, the seeds of the mangoes and some scraping from the mangoes remained... I was in two minds, either to make raw mango squash or Jam... finally decided on making the Jam... 
Home made Jams are best as no preservatives are used... 2 main ingredients are used Raw mango pulp and sugar... 
There are optional ingredients that can be added to enhance the taste like Cardamom pods, Red Chilli flakes, garlic, Bacon mince etc. 
If you love pork, you must add fried bacon mince or fried bacon pieces into the Raw mango jam and have it with toasted bread... it’s yum... 

Here I had used 15 mango seeds and 1 cup scraping from the raw mango, to which I had added 2 cups of water, 1 tsp of Rock salt, 1 tsp of turmeric powder for the colour and 2 crushed Cardamom, pressure cooked it and strained the pulp through a wire-mesh strainer.

2 cups of Raw Mango pulp 
2 cups of Sugar or more as per the sourness 

Take the raw mango pulp and the sugar in a heavy bottom pot, on a low flame, let the pulp and sugar simmer, and occasionally keep stirring the ingredients. Occasionally keep cleaning the sides of the pot and remove the scum that forms on the top. Once the pulp reduce, thickens up and changes it’s colour, check if the jam is ready, take a small steel plate, keep it in the fridge and cool it. Take the plate and pour 1/4 tsp of the jam, if the jam starts to set then it is done. Cool it a bit. Take a clean glass bottle and pour the jam in the bottle and let it set in the bottle. Enjoy it with bread, roti or paratha.
