The hard thing about making jam is the cooking and the jar-sterilizing. Forget that — go raw instead with this easy recipe, a fun summer treat that the kids can help make.
Do you avoid giving your child mangoes because they're too messy to cut? Here's an easy solution: try slicing them the way they do in the fruit's native southern Asia.
This batch of jam cost me $5 (including pectin and sugar), and I made 48 ounces. It's so much fun to make and it takes around a half an hour, start to finish, as long as you remember to run the dish washer so that your jars are nice and clean and hot when you go to fill them. Note that I'm giving you directions for freezing the jam, which is a great baby step to take if you're new to canning. You can put the jam in jars or plastic containers and pop them in your freezer, and then you don't have to get into the whole sterilizing/pasteurizing scene. Just be sure to wear an apron, for the full Ma-Ingalls effect.
