Flavored butters help add interest to a variety of dishes. You can add herbs, spices, vegetables and even fruits to regular butter to boost the flavor profile and make your food more exciting. Mango butter gives a dish a slightly tropical feel, and it pairs well with corn on the cob or roasted vegetables. You can make mango butter in your own kitchen for a fraction of the cost of buying it prepared.
Slice one ripe mango around the middle, all the way down to the stone. Twist the two sides apart and remove the stone.
Scoop out the flesh of the mango with a spoon, and finely chop, or puree, it in a blender or food processor.
Mix 1/2 cup of mango puree with 1 cup of unsalted, room temperature butter in a mixing bowl, and then place in a dish and serve.
Refrigerate the leftover mango butter for up to two weeks.
