Mango Mood #4 - Mango Preserve & Milk Shake

Mango Preserve4

Next on "Mango Mood" series is a very simple method to preserve mango puree until next mango season.

Even after eating 100+ juicy mangoes this season my thirst for mango would never go dry. So thought of saving some mango in my bank for future cravings :)

My aunt suggested this simple method that she has been following for ages and I'm wondering how I missed it all these years.

If you love mango milk shakes, this is sure a keeper method for you to get them done in a jiffy :)

Mango Preserve2

Ingredients:

Mangoes
Sugar

Mango Preserve3

Method:

Peel the skin and chop the mangoes roughly.

Make mango puree without adding water.

Sterilize a freezer proof box.

Pour the puree into the box until it reaches 1 inch height. Now smear sugar on top of the layer until it is completed covered with sugar. The sugar layer should be atleast 1/4 inch thick.

In the same way alternate mango puree layer and sugar layer until the box is full. The top most layer should be of sugar.

Close the box tight and put it in the freezer.

This can be preserved for a year.

Use it when you want by scooping out the mango puree to make milk shakes, yoghurt shakes and so on.

After you scoop out some mango puree from the box, remember to smear sugar on it again to prevent it from getting spoilt.

Note: Use disposable kitchen gloved when you do the entire process.

Mango Preserve

Since Sugar is a natural preservative, it will keep the mango puree fresh and flavorful for a year or even a little more :)

You can rejoice your mango mood throughout the year :)

Mango Preserve1

Scoop out some mango puree from the preserve and pulse it with some milk and cardamom powder to enjoy fresh mango milkshakes :)

You can use the preserved mango puree as dessert toppings etc :)
