I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Warm Mango Coleslaw

Sometimes you just stumble into a good recipe. That's what happened here. The plan was to make a coleslaw with mango, served cold. But the mango I bought was quite unripe, so I decided to cook everything up and see what happens. Well, happy little accident, it was a huge success! Not only did the mango soften up but the jalapeño and allspice gave this slaw a decidedly Caribbean spin!

1 mango, a little on the green side, peeled and diced
1 apple, unpeeled and shredded on a box grater
1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded cabbage or store bought coleslaw mix 
1 tbsp finely chopped jalapeño
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 - 1/3 cup water
Juice of 1/2 a lime

Combine everything except the lime juice in a medium saucepan. I must say the mango had no juice at all when dicing it, it was that unripe! Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover. Add a little more water if needed. Simmer for 5-10 minutes or until tender to your liking. Remove from heat and add the lime juice.

Beautiful as a salad course with chopped romaine.

Or as a side with fish or chicken. Here we had it with open faced chicken tacos.
Makes 4 side salad servings.
