|4||Not-too-ripe mangoes; peel and slice each into 8 strips, (should make 4 cups)|
|1 cup||White vinegar|
|6 cups||White sugar|
|2 tablespoons||Whole cloves|
|2 teaspoons||Whole allspice|
|2 tablespoons||Blades of mace; (I didnít have any so I used 1/4 of a nutmeg coarsely cut)|

adapted from FINE PRESERVING by C. Plagemann, 1967 boil "B" together for a few minutes.
add a cheesecloth bag (I use a stainless steel tea ball) containing "C".
Add the sliced mangoes and boil for about 5 minutes. Remove the mangoes to a bowl and simmer the liquid until it thickens some. Add mangoes and bring to a boil, simmer a little longer.
Sterilize 6 half-pint jars. Add equally among the jars. Fill jars with the liquid and seal.
Process for 5 minutes in a boiling water bath.
This does not have to sit before using.
If you like you can put it in a refrigerator container and store in the fridge, since it makes so little; but its really good and would make a nice gift.
