Mango jam? Sounds ono, 1936.

BUSINESSMAN HAS OWN RECIPE FOR RIPE MANGO JAM

With mango trees loaded with fruits its almost a crime to let all the luscious fruit go to waste.

That’s the opinion of Robert F. Lange, Honolulu businessman, who is no mean chef himself when it comes to stirring up tempting dishes.

Mr. Lange suggests that more island housewives use the ripe mangoes for making mango jam, which is easily made and delicious to eat.

Here’s his easy recipe.

To each pound of sliced mangoes, use one pound of sugar. Use mashed lemon or shredded pineapple, to each pound and one half of mangoes. Cook together until thick, pour into glases and seal.

He probably doesn’t realize that there are still thousands of old time Hawaiians in the territory who cannot read English and who depend on the reports from the legislature through their own Hawaiian language newspaper, otherwise they won’t know what has been done by our law makers.
