  4. Cook it until it thickens, about 15 minutes, stirring frequently.

    Do you use both the fresh mango AND the frozen chunks? Or was this supposed to be listed as two different options? Thanks!

      Hey Kathleen, There was an “or” at the end of the fresh mangos line, but i’ve editted it to be much clearer now.
      It is supposed to be one or the other.
