For the Jam

  • Mango puree - 200 grams (about 7 ounces)
  • Passionfruit puree - 100 grams (about 3.5 ounces)
  • Cornstarch - 1 tablespoon
  • Sugar - 60 grams (about 2 ounces or to taste)


  • Saucepan

    Ensure it's heavy-bottomed to prevent burning. A non-stick surface can be particularly helpful.

  • Mixing Bowl

    Use a medium-sized bowl to dissolve the cornstarch in water without making a mess.

  • Spatula

    High-heat resistant silicone spatulas are great for stirring and scraping down the sides of your saucepan.

  • Measuring Cups and Spoons

    Accurate measurements are key to getting the balance of flavors just right.


Step 1

Preparing the Jam

Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tablespoons of cold water and mix well.
In a saucepan, combine mango and passionfruit purees. Add sugar and heat until the sugar has dissolved.
Add the cornstarch mixture to the saucepan and stir vigorously to prevent lumps.
Heat for an additional 2-3 minutes while stirring, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
