Get out of your jelly rut — mango and pineapple jam gives breakfast a tropical flair

We all buy our jams because it is easier that way, and when we find a flavor we love, it's hard to change. But sometimes it's nice to make our own when we have fresh fruit on hand.

I remember how much I loved mango jam when I was growing up. How can I forget when it was the only flavor I spread on my toast? When I have a ripe mango and pineapple, I like to make jam with them, adding a touch of lime, which gives an aromatic edge to this fantastic marriage of flavors.
