What to do with a huge tin of mango puree (other than curry)?

Trying to use up items in my pantry. Any interesting or unusual ideas for mango puree (preferably savoury but am open to sweet as well)? Have mango vinaigrette recipes as well - don't need those. I cannot even remember what recipe I had in mind when buying it. :-(

  1. Mango lassi. Typically sweet of course but maybe you could play with some savory spices, lime juice, salt?
    Mango pie, done much like pumpkin pie, so at least not as sweet as a cream pie. I think there's a recipe on allrecipes but it's basically like pumpkin pie subbing mango purée.

      Man, of course - Mango Lassi! (Smacking my forehead.) I've thought of pie (and like the idea) but am looking for more savoury preparations as well - I love fruit and proteins together. Maybe as a marinade..

    2. To me, that's got pulled pork written all over it...

        ...or duck.

        ..and cocktails

          Pulled duck or pork I think it will be. We are getting a fresh pork shoulder Tuesday. For some reason I had a mental block earlier - my pantry is filled to overflowing and I really must whittle it down before it gets out of hand! Most of the time I look at it in joy but sometimes I nearly cringe. I am such a hoarder.

          Admittedly Cuban cuisine is probably one of those I know least about but do have lots of Cuban recipes.

          As it is so cold (-30C) no ideas of making ice cream, gelato, etc.

          Thanks lots!

            A full pantry is an excellent "excuse" to get busy :)

      2. You might use it in a sauce made with chicken stock, minced onion, soy sauce, and chopped garlic. Add a splash of balsamic vinegar if you like. Goes well with braised chicken.
