Mango Star Anise, originally uploaded by Lameen.

I'm trying to share recipes with you that relate to my Zazzle calendar and for April 2009 it was this picture – one day to go before May 2009. OK ! this is a really "impress your friends" recipe. Peel a mango, cut up into mango chunks – show your friends this impressive looking "hedgehog" style cut.


Place in a pan with vanilla seeds/extract, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, a dessert spoon of honey and of course star anise for about 5 mins and serve topped with mascarpone or thick cream…. Delicious. A really quick dessert after a spicy meal, enjoy !!!
