     1. Mango Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 can of mango in syrup or two peeled, seeded, and chopped mangoes
  • 1/2 tbsp of cornflour
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • sugar – to taste –

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop the mangoes into small cubes or wedges.
  2. Get approximately 1/3 of the chopped mangoes and reserve the rest.
  3. Take this 1/3 chopped mango to a pan, pour the sugar and the water at slow heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Take the mixture out from the pan and blend it until smooth.
  5. Return the mango sauce mixture back into the pan.
  6. Dissolve the corn in a little bit of water and add it to the mango sauce.
  7. Stir the mango sauce until it thickens slightly.
  8. Let it cool.
  9. Once your mango sauce is completely cooled, you can pour it onto your cheesecake, spread it all over it, and garnish with the reserved mango cubes or wedges.

      2. Mango Compote

Ingredients

  • 200 g of peeled, seeded, and chopped mangoes – or canned in syrup –
  • 1 lemon – juice –
  • 100 g of sugar
  • 50 ml of water

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop the mangoes into small cubes.
  2. Cook for about ten minutes until the mangoes are softened and the mixture thickens.
  3. Let it cool before you decorate your cheesecake.

You can add a sheet of previously moistened gelatin to either of these desserts, you can also add a blast of rum or gin once the compote is cooled. That way the alcohol contained won’t evaporate.

Another option is to use frozen mangoes or mango puree, many markets now sell them, so don’t be afraid of using them, they’re also a good option if you’re in a hurry. And, in case you choose the mango puree, make sure this is 100% pulp, and decorate with cream or shredded coconut. Let your imagination run!

Cooking with Mango: Tips and Facts

Here are some interesting tips and facts you might want to know before cooking your fresh mangoes.

  • There are some different types of Mangoes, choose your favorite one.
  • Examine your mango. By doing this, you will get a fresh and firm type of mango. You don’t need this to be pureed and not be able to cut it beautifully, we want this to maintain its form.
  • If the mango it’s too ripe, gently massage it until it softens.
  • Don’t use the skin. If you’re a zero-waste kind of person, you got to know that the skin irritates your mouth and stomach. For instance, you may need to avoid it.
  • Mango has a lot of sugar already, so be careful with the extra sugar you put in your recipe.
