The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
Why do I do this to myself?

There are two really un-ripe mangoes sitting on my counter. Or there were. And then I got this really bright idea on what to do with them since I have a bag of clementine oranges.

Take the orange part off of two clementines. Boil them in water. Drain. Now boil em in one part water, two parts sugar until you can see through them.

Get a one to one bigger pot of sugar and water boiling-- really roiling. Add clementine slices. Don't do like I did, cut those slices in half. Pour the syrup-- peels and all-- into pot with orange slices.

Dice the rock hard mangoes. Put those in the roiling pot.

I am now waiting for the final pot to reduce. I would like to go to sleep but I can't. I have a pretty jar I'm gonna put all this in once in cools. Some time in the middle of the night. I gotta be up in 6 hours.

ETA: Forgot to add that I put a half a cinnamon stick in the pot for good luck. I have no idea what this will taste like. I think I'll put it on some pancakes this weekend.
