I made some today I think it's missing something flavor wise. Maybe Manny @ms6852 can help me out.
The recipe is 4 cups mangos 1/4 cup lime juice
Surejell
6 cups sugar.

Rae, I am not sure if this will help but I had a friend tell me that to kick up the flavor of the mango to add some peaches. I cannot remember the mango / peach ratio but I do remember how good they tasted.

Your recipe sounds right on for Jam ... I use the same basic recipe . Fruit - Sugar - Surejell
What I have found that makes or breaks the flavor ... is the Taste of the fruit . if it doesn't taste that good ...the jam isn't going to taste that good . For years I used some fresh local strawberries but the variety they grow locally looks good but has a low sugar content so it will ship well ... they just weren't that sweet or actually that good tasting ... disappointed with local fresh berries I tried frozen strawberries . They were picked and frozen ...no shipping and higher sugar content made them taste so good ... the Jam I made with them was Wonderful ...really Good !
So my advice is use really good tasting fruit ...after that all you can do is add a bit of lemon juice or lime juice but the truth is if the mango's don't taste that good ...don't expect great tasting jam ...ain't gonna happen .

The mangos were wonderful. Dad and I had no problem cleaning up the pits lol. I personally think I needed to cook longer. And it needed a kick. I do love the idea of peaches....

Mmmmm, mangoes ... my favorite fruit! But after eating them in Ghana, it is hard to eat them anywhere else ... I have never had any as sweet or flavorful as the mangoes in Ghana! Okay, now I am ready to fly back to Ghana ... it should be mango season now ...

If I can get really Good peaches ... I'm making Peach Jam ... I've driven a couple hours North to Ruston LA to get good sweet juicy tree ripened peaches ... what I can't eat fresh goes into Jam ... Also a Peach Cobbler has to be made ... Peach Cobbler ... Heaven in a square dish !

What I miss the most is apricots. My grandmother use to make the most delicious apricot pies she would pick from her trees. She had peaches too, but apricot was my favorite.
