Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Here's a mango recipe idea from a cook book published by my son's primary school in 1988. I can vouch for it being very good.
Mango fruit dip:
Peel a mango, remove stone and mash flesh with a fork. Stir in one tablespoon or so of flaked coconut - preferable not shredded as it's too messy to eat. Stir in enough sour cream to make it runny. Cover and refrigerate overnight, it will be firmer when cold.
Serve in a pretty dish in the centre of a platter, surrounded by fruit for dipping.....whole strawberries, pieces of stone fruit (apricot, peach, plum), anything your little heart desires really. I have also served it dolloped on cut-up fruit salad.
Makes a pretty centrepiece for a table, when we can entertain more than two people again. I have served it as a Christmas table centrepiece.
Somehow, though, I suspect a mammoth mango might be a bit much for this!
