With all the fruits that are in season now, it is a good idea to take advantage of it. I have never really eaten mangoes before. I tried them for the first time last year, and this year, have had quite a few. Once you figure out how to peel & dice them, they really aren’t so intimidating anymore.
This super simple Mango Topping, which we ate on ice cream, would have been great on white cake too. Although the flavour was really good, next time I think I would add either some scraped out vanilla bean, or some rum to it while frying it up. But, as is, it was really delicious as well.
- 3 cups mangoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon orange juice
- 3 tablespoons water
- In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine all ingredients. Stir until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and serve.
