Simple Mango Marmalade
It's mango season and they're sweet and cheap...Make some marmalade today and in the next day or two I'll walk you through a great salmon dinner using it. In the meantime spread this on toast, biscuits or bagels!
Makes about 2 1/2 cups
1 navel orange sliced thinly (peel and all) and then the slices quartered
1/2 of a lemon sliced thinly(peel and all) and then the slices quartered
3 cups water
3 cups peeled and diced mango(small dice) - I used 3 mangoes
1 cup granulated sugar
1/8 tsp salt
In a medium sauce pan bring the water, orange slices and lemon slices up to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes.
Add the mango, sugar and salt and simmer for about 20 more minutes, stirring now and then.
After the 20 minutes, use a potato masher (or similar item) to mash up the mango pieces that haven't broken up. Cool and refrigerate.
