Mango

Mango Cheesecake   by Marelina Stanton
Combine 1 cup plain sweet biscuit crumbs, 1 cup finely chopped pecans, ground almonds or walnuts, and 75g butter. Press evenly over base of greased 20cm springform tin & refrigerate 30 mins.
Cream Cheese Filling
Beat til smooth: 250gm packet cream cheese, ½ cup caster sugar and 1½ medium mangoes
Add 300ml carton thickened cream til combined. Cool but do not allow to set.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon gelatine over ¼ cup hot water & heat 30 secs in microwave.
Add gelatine to mango mixture and stir in remaining chopped up mangoes.
Pour filling over biscuit base and refrigerate several hours.
Notes:  I used individual ramekins and pressed 1 tablespoon of the crumbs into the base.  I think it would be OK to not even have the crumbs, skip it and just enjoy this dessert.  Made 11 ramekins.  Also, I keep long life cream in the pantry so I don’t have to rush down to the shops whenever I need cream. There is only 200ml cream in these cartons but recipe turned out just fine.

Mango Wine Recipe   Congratulations to Leigh Boileau for taking out a First for your class at the RNA Show. It was a really well balanced Mango wine. A winning Mango wine is a very difficult feat to pull off as it’s so hard to get a good balance. So from all of the Brewers, 'Well done Mate', and I hope we see a lot more club entries into the RNA Show next year.  Ref: Tony Bilborough

Boil 3.5 L of water. While boiling the water, prepare 1.5 kg of mangoes by peeling, slicing and dicing. Liquefy the fruit using a blender. If there is no blender available, you can put the mangoes inside a straining bag, place it inside the fermenting bucket, then mash the mangoes using a potato masher. When the water boils, add 1.3 kg of sugar to the water. Stir the hot water to make it absorb more sugar. Once all the sugar has been dissolved the liquid substance will become syrupy. Let it cool a bit, then pour the liquid on the mashed mango inside the fermentor. Add ¼ tsp tannin, 1 ½ tsp acid blend, 2 Campden tablets and 1 tsp yeast nutrients together with the mixture in the fermentor. Cover the fermentor and leave it at room temperature for 24 hours. Then add ½ tsp pectic enzyme. Leave it again for 12 hours. Add 1 tsp wine yeast. Let yeast do its work for 10 days. Squeeze the straining bag 2-3 times a day for ten days. On the tenth day, squeeze the straining bag till dry then discard the bag and the pulp. Let everything settle overnight. Siphon the concoction to the secondary fermentor. Minimize the transfer of lees from the primary to the secondary. Air lock the secondary and leave it for 30 days. Rack the wine every two months for six months or until wine has no more lees. Bottle and age.
