This was adapted from Peach Preserves (on this site, thank you Kevin!). I changed some of the amounts and ingredients. Full of flavor, and you leave the peach skin on so it's a cinch to make! There are chunks of fruit, so if you want a smoother texture, add a couple more peaches before cooking and strain with a mesh strainer before adding sugar. As with all preserves, a little time consuming, but worth every minute...

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place 1/2 the peaches in a large saucepan and crush until mostly mashed. Add the remaining peaches and mangos. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat. Cook until mostly liquid, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Pour peach-mango mixture into a bowl and measure 5 1/4 cups back into the pan. For a thicker mixture, use only 5 cups. Add sugar to the pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Gradually stir in pectin and bring back to a boil. Boil for 1 minute; immediately remove from heat.

  • Pour preserves into hot, sterilized jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Run a clean knife or thin spatula around the insides of the jars to remove any air bubbles. Wipe rims with a moist paper towel to remove any residue. Top with lids and screw on rings.

  • Place a rack in the bottom of a large canning pot and fill halfway with water. Bring to a boil and lower jars 2 inches apart into the boiling water using a holder. Pour in more boiling water to cover jars by at least 1 inch. Bring to a rolling boil, cover, and process for 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Three cups of fresh chopped mangoes is equivalent to about 1 pound of frozen mangos, thawed.
