Stewed Mangoes With Cloves

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Elmotoo

In Liberia, a simple fruit dessert might be added to the dinner or served later in the evening. You can make this with fresh or canned (yellow cling) peaches or apricots if mangos are not available. Use two 24-oz. cans of peaches or apricots for eight servings.

I liked the idea of a chunky sauce so I purposely used ripe mangoes. I did as suggested & added a cinnamon stick while simmering. Very delicious! Made for NAME Tag
