How I Luv Ya, How I Luv Ya. . .My Dear Ole Mamey
Just like the conquistidors and early adventurers arriving in the New World I have stumbled upon the Mamey Fruit,(pronounced ma-Mey), the national fruit of Cuba.
Silken like soft pudding, the fruit has a complex layer of flavors, reminiscent of mango and figs. (Some say apricots but I tasted figs.)
I have two plans for my Mamey fruit. The sauce (pictured here)will top a grilled Grouper Sandwich. I paired the Mamey
with ripe banana, unsweetened coconut cream, fresh chives, hot chili oil, mayo and wasabi.
The second recipe will be a conserve of Black Mission Figs and Mamey Fruit for grilled breakfast breads and cheese!
