"This recipe is a sweet preserve. I used to make it for my M.I.L. for Christmas, as it incorporated her 2 favourite flavours, mango and ginger! She loved it and devoured it every year! M.I.L. was not a fan of the chilli, so I used to tie a vanilla pod and a few whole cloves in muslin instead..... which was removed before bottling of course! This made for more of a sweeter preserve for her. You could also use star anise of cracked cardamom pods in a tied muslin bag as something different. This makes about 4 jars...... but will depend on the size jars you use. N.B. You will need approx 900gr (2lb) mangoes for this recipe (4 mangoes). Yields 4 jars"
