I first came up with this idea for Vanilla Mango Jam a few years back when I was planning a birthday cake for Spouse. She absolutely loves gingerbread cake but isn’t a big fan of fully frosted cakes. What I came up with was a One Bowl Gingerbread Cake with a simple vanilla glaze. Then I wondered about maybe creating a filling for the cake. It ended up being this very jam.

At the time we had some mangoes on hand and I had just picked up some vanilla beans during some shopping for baking ingredients. The fragrant vanilla and exotic mango flavours were so delectable together that we’ve since made small batches of this jam of weekend brunches. It is just fantastic with clotted cream on these delicate little scones, making it perfect for teatime as well.

Vanilla Mango Jam - the perfect elegant jam for tea with scones.

Can you freeze this jam? If so how long will last in freezer?

Oh a couple of weeks or more at least. Sugar is generally a good preservative.

Given that mangos vary if size, can you tell me how much mango pulp 3 mangos produced? This looks delicious and since I love all things mango, I want to make this. I will be using Afluto mangos. Thank you.

I'd guess about 3 cups. Mine were quite large. You can adjust the sugar to taste if you like.

If using frozen diced mango, what would be the suggested quantity. I have a couple bags I would like to use up.

Thanks.

3-4 cups diced. Adjust the sugar to our taste if you like.
