Raspberry Mango Jelly

Sometimes, it's hard for me to say no to this face.
He and his brothers wanted to help make raspberry jelly. (They were jealous of Jovana getting to make strawberry jelly a few weeks ago.) It's almost like the boys don't realize that I purposefully make jelly late at night so they don't get to help.

Sometimes, when it's so much faster just to do it myself, I have to remember that if I don't take advantage of their enthusiasm now, they won't want to help later. And later they'll be able to complete various tasks faster and better than I will.

They worked hard to strain the seeds and ended up all covered in raspberry juice. I worked hard getting all of the red splatters wiped up. And when I found a mango in my fruit bowl I got the grand idea to put it in one batch of jelly. I won't lie. It's really good. Sit on the couch with a jar and spoon and ridiculously excite your taste buds eating it good.

I'm giving one lucky reader an opportunity to win a jar.
