● 400 g mango
● 350 g sugar
● 200 g water
● 1 cinnamon stick
● juice of 1/2 lemon
Wash and peel the fruit and remove the pits.
Slice into bite-sized pieces and put the fruit in a pot.
Add the sugar, the water and the cinnamon stick and put the pot on medium heat.
Boil for 15-20 minutes until the syrup reaches the desired consistency.
Once the syrup is ready, add the lemon juice, stir and remove from the heat.
To see if the syrup has the desired consistency, put some syrup on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the syrup is ready.
Allow it to rest for 10 minutes, remove the cinnamon stick and then store in glass sterilized jars.
