Ingredients

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds removed
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 cup Lavender Nut Fricasee

Preparation

  • 1 TO PREPARE THE MIXTURE: In a small stainless steel bowl whisk the yolks and sugar together until smooth. In a sauce pan warm the cream and vanilla over medium heat. Pour the cream into the egg mixture while whisking. Set aside.
  • 2 TO BAKE THE CUSTARD: Preheat the oven to 300ºF. Divide the mango into six 4 ounce porcelain ramekins. Pour the custard on top of the mango. Place them in a tall sided pan and fill with water to cover half way up the ramekin. Place pan in oven and bake for approximately 40 minutes until just set. Remove from oven and cool at least 1 hour. Then chill in the refrigerator.
  • 3 TO SERVE: Sprinkle the tops of the custards with light brown sugar in an even layer. Using a small torch, caramelize the sugar lightly over the whole top. Garnish with Lavender Nut Fricassee.
