Papaya Mango Habanero Jam

by Cindy Yanasha Angulo in , , , , ,

The yumminess is unbearable! Use the natural sweetness of mangoes & papayas for a quick & easy jam. I infused mine with a simple syrup with habaneros for a subtle kick!


Time: 1.5 hours  


  • 3 ripe mangoes
  • 1 small ripe papaya  
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 Habanero, chopped fine with seeds removed
  • 1 cup white sugar for the simple syrup
  • 2 cups water for the simple syrup  


  1. Dice the mangoes & papaya into small cubes then add them to a large pot.  
  2. Slowly heat the fruit on medium so the cooled down. You don't need to add water because the fruit has its own juices. 
  3. After about 10 minutes, add the corn starch & sugar. Stir to combine.  
  4. Stir occasionally until the fruit boils down, sort of mushy.  
  5. After about 30 minutes, use an immersion blender to smooth out the fruit so it only has a few small chunks left.  
  6. In another small pot, make a simple syrup with the sugar, water & habanero. 
  7. Add the syrup in the pot with the jam & stir to infuse the jam with habanero.  
  8. Once the consistency is thick & jam-like, turn off the heat & let it cool.
  9. Refrigerate & enjoy for up to 2 weeks.
