Orange and mango jam

Orange and mango jam

Christmas goodies!
What if we waited for Santa Claus with a jam like this? I personally think that I would impress him with the aroma and he would take something out of the bag.

  • 800 gr mango cleaned, pitted and cut into cubes
  • 200 gr orange juice
  • juice of 1-2 lemons
  • peel from an organic orange
  • 700 gr sugar

Servings: 12

Preparation time: less than 60 minutes

RECIPE PREPARATION Orange and mango jam:

The recipe is basically very simple. It takes us the longest time to prepare mangoes: peel them, remove the seeds and cut them into cubes.

Put the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Boil until it binds, frothing as many times as needed. When it is ready, we put the jam in the sterile jars, which we cover with towels.

Ice cream from jam and melon

You have the opportunity to capitalize on jams that have not been eaten for years and are stored in the pantries. I had quince here, but I also made watermelon jam. The purpose of the jam is to replace the sugar giving a very, very good taste aroma.
If you have a blender and an ice cream maker, cooking becomes child's play.

Here is a special menu for Christmas:

Donuts with caviar and pickles

Prepare a dough from: 300 ml water, 150 ml oil, 300 g flour, 5 eggs and a little salt. Water and oil are boiled together and then flour is added in the rain. Leave it on the fire until a hard dough is formed. When cooled, add eggs one at a time and mix well. From the dough thus obtained, the not too large donuts are formed, which are baked in the preheated oven. They will be empty inside and can be filled with caviar, but also with other creams (cheese, mayonnaise with mushrooms, pate) and decorate with olives or pickles.
