I have spent the last two months in Peru, enjoying the wonderful summer and great food. One of my biggest temptations here is the fresh and colorful fruits that are found everywhere, many of them difficult or impossible to find in other countries.
I can find mangoes, for example, in New York, and they’re often tasty. But I must confess that they never come close to the degree of excellence of fresh mangoes from Peru. Another fruit that I love, not only for its flavor and texture, but also for its beauty is aguaymanto (goldenberry or pichuberry).
So, a couple of weeks ago, I realized I had all these delicious ingredients in my kitchen and thought to make one of my favorite desserts with a special twist of flavor and color. I decided to add mango to my flan and garnish it with aguaymantos, and the end result exceeded my expectations. Totally delicious. Do you want to try it?
