I bought a crate of mangoes from a roadside fruit stand for $5.  It was enough to fill a a laundry basket.  I made lots of goodies but the best was the Tropical Vanilla Mango Jam.  

I used my homemade vanilla extract...yet another goody purchased here in Costa Rica.  Along with raw sugar and good ol' H2O to make sunshine in a jam jar.  

FYI - to make your own vanilla. Simply buy 2 pods, split them and add to a small bottle of vodka.  Let sit for 3 months.  Then enjoy the tastiest vanilla.  Or make drinks with it!

It was super easy and even let me break out my precious immersion blender.  I feel like a some kind of culinary badass whenever I use it.    

 Then viola homemade jam!  I gifted a few jars to friends and then kept the rest for myself.  Delish!

More details about the recipe can be found at herehttp://chicaenglish.blogspot.com/2011/07/tropical-vanilla-mango-jam.html http://chicaenglish.blogspot.com/2011/07/tropical-vanilla-mango-jam.html

That basket of mangoes just made me really, really hungry.  The jam sounds amazing too.  I am going to have to make some this weekend when I have mangoes again.

I still cannot believe I got the whole basket for $5 USD.  Though after I got them we passed another fruit stand that had a basket for $4 USD.  Cool

I love living in Costa Rica.
