      Title: Am ka murabba (green mango preserve)
 Categories: Jam/jelly, Indian
      Yield: 1 Servings
      2 lb Mangoes
  1 1/4 pt Water
      2 oz Almonds; toasted/blanched
      1 ts Citric acid
      6 dr Kewra essence OR 1 tb ruh
      3 lb Sugar
      8    Green cardamom; seeds only
  Wash, peel, cut the mangoes into large slices and prick all over with
  a fork. Or cut them into fancy shapes and do not prick. Tie the slices
  loosely in a piece of muslin, and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes in 1 1/4
  pint of boiling water.
  Remove and dry them on a piece of cloth. Add sugar and citric acid to
  the water in which mango slices were boiled. Cook to one-thread
  consistency (remove the scum from the surface of the syrup). Add
  mango slices, simmer till the syrup thickens and the slices become
  tender and slightly translucent. Leave for 12 hours.
  Remove the slices from the syrup if they are sufficiently tender. Tie
  the crushed cardamom seeds in a piece of muslin and add this to the
  syrup. Boil till it again acquires one-thread consistency.
  Remove the muslin containing the cardamom seeds, squeeze out the
  juice and discard the seeds. Add mango slices and peeled halves of
  blanced almonds and cook for a few minutes more. Remove from the heat
  and cool.
  Add ruh kewra or essence and pour into hot clean glass jars,
  previously cleaned with boiling hot water. Fill just short of
  overflowing, put a disc of 2 to 3 layers of greaseproof or waxed
  paper over the mouth of the jar and cover with a screw-cap.
