Jams, Chutneys and Sauces:
Fun Fact: Mango’s are considered valuable in weight loss as they are so naturally sweet they make a great filling substitute for sugar.
Anyway, for your own mango jam you will only need mangoes, some lemons and sugar, that’s it. No preservatives and therefore you can call this recipe vegan.
This hot sauce uses carrots to provide some structure to the sauce, but the flavour profile is centred around the heat from those bright orange habaneros and the sweet from the mangoes. A bit of lime juice and vinegar help balance it out, and you’re left with a smooth sauce that begs to be drizzled over fish tacos or your favourite nacho fillings.
This Mango Syrup is made with fresh mangoes and just four ingredients. You could opt not to use any corn starch, just leave it a little less thick. It’s about as thick a pure maple syrup, may be a touch thinner. Just keep it simple, with just mango fruit, sugar, water and a bit of vanilla extract. You could use your mango syrup to top pancakes, waffles, toast, muffins or as pastry filling.
With its sweet, spicy flavour and generous chunks of juicy fresh mango, this traditional chutney is as good as any you’ll get in your local Indian restaurant. Serve it alongside all kinds of curries or with cold ham, chicken or game. It’s fantastic in cheese sandwiches, too.
