Mango-pineapple compote

One week ago I had gotten a pineapple from the grocery store and it had been sitting in the fruit basket ever since. Yesterday I started thinking what I could do with it since apparently nobody in the house was ready to eat it. First I wanted to make a cake but since I had mishaps with pineapple cake before where the cake did not bake properly because of the juicy pineapple I dropped the idea. Instead I made this compote which goes great with ice cream as a dessert or with a rice dish as a chutney.


- 2 cups pineapple, cubed
- 1 large mango, cubed
- ½ Tsp. Cardamom powder
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 3 cloves
- ½ Tbsp. Grated ginger
- ½ Tbsp. Grated lemon zest
- Sugar to taste
- About 1 ½ cups water


In a pot bring water, mango and pineapple to a boil. Mix in cardamom powder, cinnamon, cloves, lemon zest, ginger and sugar. Cook till almost all water has evaporated and pineapple and mango have become mushy. Stir frequently.
