Mammee Apple & Plantain dessert with coconut topping

Mammee Apple

This is a Mammee Apple/Zabricot or Mammisiporte. It’s large, yielding fruit off the large seeds, anywhere plus or minus 600g (21oz), grows on a huge tree and has a sweet mellow taste. I’ve made this season, Zabricot chutney, curried lentils with Zabricot and now this. A friend told me recently that she likes it best fresh with a splash of Angostura bitters. I plan to try that next.

Plantain

This is a bunch of plantain, which although it looks like a banana, must be cooked. It also has a sweet and mellow taste and I thought the two fruit would play nicely together in this dish. I was right.
