MANGO JAM

I honestly don’t understand why it took me so long to create mango jam, but now it’s here & I’m so happy to share it with everyone!

 

Ok, ok – it took me so long because the only thing I do with mango is make a mango nice-cream. But since it’s not summer anymore & I had frozen mango, I thought it would be great to experiment a bit & cook it.

 

What can I say – I have brilliant ideas 🙂 And I can share them with everyone!

 

Ingredients are utterly simple – all you need is a mango, orange & cloves. If you like it sweet, feel free to add some honey or whatever you usually use, when it’s done.

 

Mango is one of my favorite fruits ever; it’s so vibrant, beautiful & of course, nutritious! It’s rich in vitamin C, A, folate & contains vitamins K and E.

Of course, as all veggies and fruits, it will provide us with fiber, glorious fiber – making our gut happy.

It also contains copper, magnesium, potassium and even calcium and iron.

All together, mango contains around 20 vitamins & minerals.

But that’s not even all – mango also contains a couple of powerful antioxidants, including beta-carotene,  zeaxanthin, quercetin & astragalin. Yummy!

 

Mangos are great for maintaining bloog sugar, blood pressure, as well as for healthy brain & heart.

I’d say that makes it a nice addition to your daily foods!

 

Our next ingredient is orange. Oranges are amazing; I’d guess you know they’re a great source of vitamin C, but they also contain thiamin, folate & potassium.

Aside from that, oranges will provide us with antioxidants, such as flavonoids and carotenoids.

There nutrients make oranges a good choice for our gut & heart health.

Oranges are also a great source of citrates and citric acids – it is said that these are helpful as a prevention of kidney stones. (1)

 

Cloves are one of my favorite spices, I use them for sweet & savory dishes, and in beverages, they have such a distinct aroma; totally amazing.

Cloves contain vitamin C & K, and a bit of calcium & magnesium.

But where they really shine is their antioxidant content, especially eugenol, which is super powerful. It’s shown that eugenol is 5 times more powerful than vitamin E! (2) How awesome is that?!

Eugenol is great for cancer prevention & has positive effects on liver health.

 

Long story short, this jam is one of the BEST choices you can make today to improve your overall wellbeing!

Did I mention it’s delicious? 🙂
