Keri No Murabbo (Raw Mango Relish)

(by Neema Avashia)


2 large mangoes, grated

1 big pinch saffron threads

4 c. sugar

5 or 6 cloves

small piece of cinnamon bark

1/2 t. cardamom powder

Try to squeeze as much liquid as possible from the grated mango.

Collect the mango water in a bowl, and soak the saffron threads in it.

In a stainless steel pan, combine grated mango and sugar, and mix well.

Put the pan on low heat and cook, stirring continuously.

First the mango mixture will get watery as the sugar dissolves, but it will thicken.

Once the syrup thickens, add the saffron-soaked water, and turn off the heat.

Add the cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom.

Let the mixture cool completely, and store in a sterile jar.

Keep in a cool, dry place.
