  1. Place the chilli paste into a large saucepan and add the sugar and mango pulp. Juice the lemons and add the juice to the other ingredients. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
  2. Bring slowly to the boil and simmer, stirring occasionally. Keep an eye on it and test the jam by placing a small dab of the mixture onto a cool plate. If it gels quickly, within seconds, it is ready. Remove from the heat.
  3. Pour the jam into clean sterilised jars and seal. Allow the jars to cool and then process them in a water bath for about 30 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Remove from the water bath, dry the jars, and slap on some labels.
  4. The jam will keep, stored in a cool dry place, for a long time.
