Happy Valentine’s Day!!! If you would like to try your luck at winning a jar of Marketman’s homemade Mangosteen jam, this is all you have to do: just leave a comment on this post, tell me what city you are currently in, when did you first start reading marketmanila.com (approximate date is fine), and what you would do with a bottle of mangosteen jam (how would you enjoy it?). It’s that simple… after a couple of days, I will have The Kid pick random winners from all of the folks who left comments. You may join from anywhere on the planet. But here is the catch, the winners will have to pick up their bottle (or send someone else to pick it up) from a Megamall location at a date and time to be announced after the “contest” is over. I cannot send it to you in any other way… there are no ifs, buts or whys about it, got it? :) So leave me a comment like:

St. Vincent and the Grenadines, February 2005, I want to make a trifle using mangosteen jam


Bacacay, Albay, December 2006, Palaman ng Pan de Sal


It doesn’t get any easier than this. Your odds of winning are far better than lotto, and you don’t even have to buy a ticket! I will add bottles of jam as the comments pile up, putting as many as 5 jars of jam up as prizes… Good luck, and Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

    Even if I am disqualified because I can’t pick up the prize (boo hoo hoo) since I’m from Bacolod City, I like to state for the record that I have been enjoying your blog since I first read about it in the Phil. Daily Inquirer … that must have been 2004 (or 2005? sorry I really have poor memory).

    I dream of hot pan de sal (with queso de bola spread) and your mangosteen jam.

    Happy Valentine’s Day, MM!

    Yours truly from Paranaque City, Metro Manila.

    Started lurking hereabouts February 2007; posted my first comment April 9, 2007 regarding your article on the Aani Weekend Market in FTI Complex Taguig.

    I would love to use that now legendary mangosteen jam of yours as filling for jelly roll slices which will serve as the bottom and side lining for a Mangosteen Cheesecake ala Charlotte creation. Ditto for a Coffee Mangosteen Sans Rival original recipe I came up with for the recent holidays.

    Win or not, more power to you MM!

    Divisoria, Tondo, Manila. I started reading your blog in 2006, after I gave birth to my daughter. I read your blog while she is napping. If I win some mangosteen jam, whether I put it on bread or cake, I will remember my grandmother, who loved mangosteen.

    Quezon City, September 2007 while blog hopping, I haven’t tasted mangosteen in my whole life so far so winning the mangosteen jam will be a perfect time to finally have a first taste of it. Yes! Im giving Marketman’s jam the honor :) “Lanlanon lang nako… Hmmmm… ” :)

    Manila, mid-2006 while googling a couple of Filipino recipes. I’ve been part of the Marketmanila groupie since then. Haven’t had the chance of attending EBs but I’ve stalked your digital footprints – went to Balthazar’s and MOMA in 2007, got the little brown book, that sort of stuff. What I would do to that mangosteen jam? Spoon it up, take self portraits while clearing the spoon of all residue, and put all those photos on my blog for everyone to see and hate me for actually winning. I jest. :)

    From Toronto, Canada. I’ve been a fan since reading the PDI article online about you (can’t remember exact date, sorry). I’d have the jam as a dessert – as is, especially after a meal of rice/pinakbet or any dish with bagoong! Sluuurp!

    Beijing, China. November,2007.

    Here’s what i will do with your Mangosteen Jam prize:
    1. I really miss pan de sal in the morning there in Manila. My husband and I arrived here in Beijing last July, ’07. I will buy some Golden bread (similar to pandesal), which can be brought in Carrefour supermarket, toast it and spread Mangosteen Jam on it. Of course, nothing compares to our home-made pandesal because it is fluffier and softer.

    2. Instead of putting bavarian cream inside the Cream Puff, i’ll bake it using the mangosteen jam.

    3. Today, Valentine’s Day, for dessert, I will imagine splurging on strawberry flavored Haagen Dasz icecream topped with mangosteen jam, chocolate syrup and cashew nuts. Yummy!!!

    I work here in HK as a DH and I’ll share your mangosteen jam with my friends when they come over on Sundays for Breakfast. I’m planning to try making jam next time they come in season.

    p.s. In case you’re wondering how the jam will get here if I win it, a friend of mine is going home first week of March and she can bring it back with her after my son picks the jam.

    Thanks MM.

    Sta Mesa Manila. Around March 2006.
    Here’s what I would do:

    1. Use it as a filling for crepes along with grated cheese, top it with a little bit more drizzled mangosteen and nuts for presentation.

    2. Make a plate of Pancake filled mangosteen that stacked 3 pancaked per serving that when you cut a portion hot sweet mangosteen oozes out from within.

    3. Use it as a dip for fish/ chicken fillet instead of using the usual tartar sauce.

    YUM YUM!!!! =)

When I get home I will tell the wife that there were only 9 or so pandesals because they ran out. Or I can make the trike run around in circles till I eat my fill.

    Tagaytay City, I think last December 2007 when I googled for masa podrida.

    I will mix it with coffee ice cream. I miss Magnolia Ice Cream’s Coffee Mangosteen, eh. I think I haven’t had it in a looong time. Does your jam have some of the seeds in it? Magnolia ice cream had.

    Win or lose I am happy for the existence of your site. More power!

    I am based in London, England and been reading your blog since early 2004, probably Feb or March. I never had mangosteen jam and am dreaming of trying them on pandesal or homemade scones. Oh and by the way, I will be in Manila next month so I can pick up my jam as soon as I get there! :-)

    Feb 14, 2008 | 11:41 pm

  212. Tiffany says:

    Los Angeles, CA. Started reading marketmanila.com in May 2007 when I was browsing Google for the best desserts in Manila. Never had the privilege of tasting mangosteen in my life. I’m not even familiar with how it looks. However, seeing all the hype surrounding the famous MM’s Mangosteen Jam, in addition to my compelling curiosity, makes me want to have that jar more than anything else and I’m going to enjoy a big spoonful of it!

    Feb 14, 2008 | 11:44 pm

  213. NYCMama says:

    New York City. 2006. I will use it to top vanilla ice cream. :)

    Feb 14, 2008 | 11:54 pm

  214. John Demetrio says:

    Long Beach, CA. I had been reading Market Manila for two years and I would eat a spoonful of jam with a slice of brioche everyday so that the jam will last me for a long time I hope. Market Man, please reconsider shipping abroad, I had been a loyal reader for two years and I even made the apple pie recipe. Common Kid vote me in, I adored your ginger bread village creation last Christmas.

  215. Ana says:

    Mandaluyong. When the Inquirer article came out. I’d use the bottle in a number of ways:

  217. Sophie says:

    Quezon City. Sometime between September-October 2007. I’d use it over a slice of pound cake and experiment it together with cream cheese or buttery frosting.

    Feb 15, 2008 | 2:02 am

  218. Babette says:

    I can’t help but notice, there were only 117 votes for MM’s Mangosteen Jam (I can proudly say one of those is mine) but there are more than 200 entries here. LOL

    I’ve been a reader and sometimes commenter since 2006. I live in New England. :)

    I will savor every spoonful of MM’s mangosteen jam. If it can be frozen, I will keep it in the freezer and only get a tablespoon every month. If not, then I will keep it in the soft freeze drawer of my fridge so it’ll keep forever. It’ll be my ‘guilty pleasure’ each month. LOL

    One of the many things I can think of is spreading it on a freshly toasted English muffin or croissant. Sarap sigurado…

    Angela@Seattle, Wash.: I would be more than happy to share with you and others who might be interested in making the Coffee Mangosteen Sans Rival. Send me an e-mail:bettytrinidad@hotmail.com.

    Since you only live 2 hours way from Vancouver..please drop by and we can make Sans Rival, Ensaymada,etc. I have soooo many friends in the food industry who up to this day, we hang out. One in particular in a VISUAL PERSON…she has to see it how I make things like my Indian Candied Salmon or Chocolate Roses…so she invites herself to our house and have coffee and start baking or smoking FISH!!! So, if you;re heading out to this neck of the woods, come on over. Or next time we go down South (Washington or Oregon), I will show you how to do the Sans Rival. Sometimes it helps to see the right consistency of the meringue, etc….drop me a line and we’ll go from there…sounds good?

    For the jam, spread it on Skyflakes crackers with cheese for the counterpoint to its sweetness. =)

  258. jf says:

    makati.around august 2007, i think. Your mangosteen jam would probably be worthy enough to put over one of my precious Bouchon bakery croissants. i froze and brought home about 3 dozen croissants, 2 dozen muffins…you get the idea…and i have half of one everyday for breakfast.

  263. Rose Ann says:

    Bonjour Marketman, I’ve been enjoying your blog from France since 2005 and I would likewise enjoy your mangosteen jam with (fresh from the oven) croissants and toasted baguettes. I am also tempted to use it, instead of the usual fig jam, as a spread with foie gras (cuit au torchon) over slices of grilled french bread or pain de campagne for les apperitifs.

    Feb 16, 2008 | 6:33 am

    Diliman, Quezon City. Discovered Market Manila via my friends blog entry about the only blog she reads when she is busy that was about a year ago March 2007.

    Mangosteen jam would be great on my buttered toast, fresh pandesal from the panederia sa kanto, on cookies for merienda, baon for my hubby, on mamon, ensaimada…the list will go on. I haven’t tasted any mangosteen jam ever. But it is one of my favorite fresh fruits from the south.
