Canning Cherry Mango Conserve [No Pectin]

Updated: Oct 19, 2023

I love mangoes so I was bound to pair them with cherries eventually and I am so glad I did in the form of canning cherry mango conserve. The Mangoes lighten up the dark cherry color to a really pretty dark pink. The citrusy flavor of the mango with the sweet cherries give a flavor that is reminiscent of honey. Add the nuts and you have a divine conserve for adding to many different foods.

Gathering the supplies for canning cherry mango conserve.



Start by preparing your boiling water bath with enough water to cover 5 half-pint jars with 1-2 inches of water. Place the pot on the stove on medium heat. Next, preheat your jars in the oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, submerge your lids in a small pan of water, bring it to a boil, and then leave it at a simmer. Now that your equipment is ready, it is time to start making the conserve.


  • 3 c chopped mango

  • 3 c pitted and chopped cherries

  • 1/2 c walnuts

  • 4 c sugar

  • 1/2 tsp almond extract

  • 1/2 tsp ginger

  • 1/2 tsp butter (optional)
