Preparation

  1. Remove the lemon peel into strips. Reserve.
  2. Peel the mangoes and cut in small cubes, approximately 1/2 inch. Transfer to a medium bowl and mix with the lime juice and 1 teaspoon salt.
  3. In a medium saucepan mix the sugar, water, light corn syrup and strips of lime peel. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, add the mango cubes and simmer for 20 minutes, moving occasionally.
  4. Remove from the heat, cover and let it stand overnight.
  5. The next day, remove the lid and bring to a simmer, cook for 20 minutes moving occasionally. Remove from the heat, cover and let it stand overnight.
  6. On the third day, remove the lid and bring to a simmer, cook for 5 minutes moving occasionally. Remove from heat and let them cool to room temperature. Once they are cold, use a slotted spoon and transfer them to a wire rack place over a rimmed baking sheet (you can use a grease splatter screen and place it over a round baking mold).
  7. Allow them to drain until they aren’t wet, it’s okay of they are sticky, around 10-12 hours.
  8. Place the dried chilies in a small bowl and mix with the remaining 2 teaspoons salt (If you are using Tajin chilies, the salt isn’t necessary). In small batches, cover the mangoes with the chili mixture until completely covered. Keep in an air-tight container for up to a month.
