Gingered-Mango Habanero Sauce

Recipe by Jesstra

when searching for a bottled marinade/sauce that is discontinued, I came across this recipe. Not what I was looking for at the time, but it's definitely a keeper. Try it on top of ice cream...REALLY. The serving size will vary depending on what you use it for.

This is a terrific recipe Jesstra, thank you so much for sharing, it was so quick and easy to make. I'll be keeping a supply of this in the fridge, it has so many possibilities. Best of all it tastes so good, who needs store bought with this recipe. Yum, love the fiesta of flavors, mango, scotch bonnet, lime and ginger, all dancing around together, so yummy. I really enjoyed the texture of the sauce very silky. I used this delicious topping for recipe #476109 it was delicious and really shone as a topping for the zucchini pancakes. Can't wait to try this on rice. Made for Fall Pac/12
