Mango Sauce
  1. Combine mango and sugar in heavy saucepan. Mix well.
  2. Cook over medium low heat stirring occasionally to keep bottom from scorching. Bring to a gentle boil, it will look milky like the picture but will start to get translucent as it starts to boil. Lower heat and let simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. (It will be frothy and start to evaporate. Stir to keep it from burning, don’t stir in sugar that forms on the sides.) Let it simmer until it’s been reduced to almost half. Don’t over boil, it will crystalize and get hard.
  3. When it’s translucent remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
  4. Mango sauce can be stored in a jar in the fridge for about 3 – 4 months. Makes 1 Quart

Recipe Notes

Sauce should be made ahead of time so it’s given a chance to cool.  You can make crepes in advance and keep covered with a damp cloth.  Put the filling in when ready to serve.
