In case you missed my post yesterday, we bought a tray of ten massive mangoes in the afternoon. Last night we used 2 of the mangoes to make some mango and passionfruit jam. This morning, we woke up with a big task at hand – to see if we could do something with all 8 of the mangoes we had left, as they were at their perfectly-sweet-and-juicy peak ripeness.
We started with… more pancakes! We had some batter left over from yesterday, and I couldn’t let it go to waste. We pureed one mango to put on top of our pancakes this morning.
Then we got cracking with some real cooking! We pureed another mango, along with the seeds scraped out of a fat, juicy vanilla pod. Then came a lot of patience and a necessary trip to Great-Grandma’s house to avoid the temptation of dipping our fingers in the pot (both of us struggled with this, not just Mr T)…. We came home to find, still waiting on the counter for us, over a litre of delicious mango and vanilla bean YOGHURT! Wooohoooo, I finally made yoghurt! I don’t know why/how it has taken me so long. I’ve owned my thermomix for 9 months and I’ve only just made yoghurt?!? I could make a baby in that time! Anyway, yay for me, I finally did it. I was a bit nervous, because I added the fruit in early rather than setting the yoghurt and then stirring the fruit in… It can make the yoghurt less likely to set. But not this time! It set beautifully, and it tastes fantastic!
…But I think he was actually trying to tell me that I should make it for him for Christmas!
