Homemade Mango Jam
Takes 40 minutes

1 1/2 kilograms ripe mangoes, peels and seeds removed, chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar, or as needed
Place mango, lemon juice, salt, and sugar into a medium pot over medium heat. Cook until mixture has thickened, stirring regularly to prevent burning the mixture. Taste while cooking to adjust sugar levels. Add more sugar if desired.
Meanwhile, sanitize two jars in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. Once mango mixture has thickened, pour into the hot jar, ensuring that it's filled to the top. Close, and turn upside down immediately. Let jar completely cool before turning right side up. Serve with butter and toast. Refrigerate upon opening.
