30 Minutes To Homemade Certo® Mango Freezer Jam

  • Prep Time: 30 Minutes (Total Time: 24 Hours 30 Minutes)
  • Serving Size: 0
  • 3 cups Prepared Fruit (about 4 Medium Fully Ripe Mangoes)
  • 6 cups Sugar, Measured Into Separate Bowl
  • 2 pouches (1 Cup Each) CERTO Fruit Pectin
  • 1/4 Fresh cup Lemon Juice

    PEEL and pit mangoes. Finely chop fruit. Measure exactly 3 cups chopped mangoes into large bowl. Stir in sugar. Let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

    MIX pectin and lemon juice. Add to mango mixture; stir 3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and no longer grainy. (A few sugar crystals may remain.)

    How To Measure Precisely

    To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cups, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.
