Pork and fruit go well together, and mamey is no exception. This is good with a simply prepared roasted pork loin. It doesn’t take long to put together, and can be made in advance or while the pork finishes cooking.
- 1 tablespoon mild olive oil
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 cup chopped mamey
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup white wine
- juice of ½ lime
- salt to taste
Heat the oil over medium low heat, add the onion and cook until it is very soft. Add the garlic and mamey and cook, stirring, 4-5 minutes. Add the water and wine and continue cooking another 4-5 minutes.
Pour the mamey mixture into a blender and puree until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, add lime juice and salt to taste. Makes about 1 ¼ cups.
