Mango Basil Jam

This slightly tropical, highly delicious, simple jam is made with just 4 ingredients and is wonderful on toast, bagels, biscuits, and waffles.


  • 2 large ripe mangoes
  • 2 tbsp Fresh basil chopped and packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp lime juice


  • Add flesh of mangoes to a food processor and pulse until the mangoes are pureed. Add the basil and process until the basil is chopped to small pieces and incorporated with the mango.
  • In a saucepan, combine mangoes, basil, and sugar and bring to medium-low heat until it just begins to slowly bubble.
  • Cook at this low temperature, stirring often with a whisk or wooden spoon, until the sugar has dissolved and the jam has thickened to the consistency you like.
  • Remove from heat and stir in lime juice.
