How often do you clean your refrigerator? I don't do it often enough, so when last week I took everything out in order to clean my fridge, I found a bag of dried mangoes my parents sent me when I broke my arm over a year ago.
At first I considered throwing away the dried mangoes, but then I felt guilty. My parents spent the money to buy and ship the mangoes and it was such a sweet gesture. So..............I made mango butter!!
This is a method and not a recipe per say.
2 cups dried mangoes
3 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Place dried mangoes into a cooking vessel: a skillet or a pot or a pan.
2. Cover the dried mangoes with water and add a few drops of vanilla extract.
3. Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until the mangoes become soft and most of the water is evaporated.
4. Cool the mixture and add to a blender. Blend until smooth.
You can't imagine how sweet my condo smelled. Speaking of sweetness, my dried mangoes were super sweet so there was no need to add sugar. You can do as you please.
So far I've had the mango butter on toast with peanut butter and also made something cold with it: stay tuned!
