Ingredients

1 cup thawed frozen mango pulp

1/3 cup sugar

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 to 2 lemons)

4 teaspoons cornstarch

Pinch of salt

3 large egg yolks

3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Directions

  1. Whisk the mango pulp, sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the egg yolks.
  2. Cook the mixture over medium heat, whisking constantly, until it¿s thick like pudding, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter a few pieces at a time until incorporated.
  3. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl, pushing it through with a rubber spatula. Press plastic wrap directly onto the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate until completely set, at least 4 hours and up to 5 days.
  4. Choose your fruit and mix up the ultimate spread.
