Mango Spread

One of the summer fruits that I love, yet that I don't rarely work with, is this little beauty:

The mango.

I love mangoes.

Yet, since I rarely work with them, I actually don't know the best way to go about cutting them...

I do the cut and score method, because I like the way it looks when I pop out all the little cubes.

We happen to have a bunch of mangoes in the house right now, as little miss has recently discovered that she likes them as much as I do... but I wasn't sure what to do with them. And then I saw this recipe for mango spread - a wonderful way to preserve the fruit and enjoy it in its delicious, wonderful sweetness.

The recipe is so easy - simply puree mango and add sugar.

Cook the mixture, let it cool, then, well, put it in a jar!

This spread is super delicious in its simplicity.

We enjoyed this spread on fresh English muffins, but I look forward to trying it other places too.

Hmm... I wonder how it would taste on ice cream??

Mango Spread
(from 4th Sense Cooking)

2 cups mango pulp (I pureed three mangoes)
1 cup sugar

Puree your mango without adding any additional liquid.
In a medium saucepan, combine the pureed mango and sugar, and cook the mixture over medium heat. Continue mixing the mixture over the heat until it begins to thicken into a jam-like texture.
Remove the pan from the heat and set it aside, allowing the mixture to come to room temperature.
Pour the cooled spread into a clean jar for storage. Store in the refrigerator.



  1. This looks amazing! Like lemon curd, which is one of my most favorite things ever... Might have to make Evan make me a batch!

  2. This looks gorgeous. I really love mangoes, but unfortunately finding good ones seems to be rather difficult where I live. Most are hard and not sweet at all! But I still keep loving them!

  3. Shelley,
    I love your mango spread, so simple and delicious. I even have jars. My husband and I eat mangoes frequently, so I know that we'll be making this spread. Thank you for stopping by my blog. It was nice to meet you.
