  1. In a large heavy-bottomed, non-reactive saucepan; combine mango, sugar and lemon juice and stir with a wooden spoon.
  2. Cook on very low heat until every grain of sugar is dissolved and mangoes are softened.
  3. Mash the pieces of mango with the back of the spoon.
  4. Increase heat to thicken contents. Cook, stirring occasionally. Skim off any light-colored foam that rises to the surface with a spoon.
  5. When jam starts to form smaller, thicker bubbles; remove from heat & test for setting.
  6. If jam is not ready, cook again until ready. Remove from heat and stir for 1 minute.
  7. Spoon the jam into clean warm dry jars, cover it with muslin cloth ( malmal ka kapra ) and keep it outside for 12 hours ( do not cover it with lid and do not keep it in fridge ).
  8. After 12 hours, cover and store in a cool, dark place or in the refrigerator.
  9. Test for setting :
  10. Remove the jam from heat before testing.
  11. Put a teaspoon of jam on a cold plate ( plate left to cool in freezer for few minutes ). Drag a finger through it. If jam is ready, the parting made by the finger will remain open. If it runs together, a little more cooking is required.
