    1. Boil, steam, or microwave whole mangoes until soft. Cool, then remove the peel and inner seed; place the mango pulp in a large bowl. Use a fork to mash the pulp well.
    2. Place the sugar and water in a large pan over low heat, stir mixture, and bring to a boil. When mixture begins boiling, increase heat to medium-high. Continue boiling until fine, soft threads form. Stir in the mango pulp, add the saffron threads and boil until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.
  • Pour cooked jam into sterilized jars and seal.
