Out of all the summer Fruit butters I’ve made this year, this one is my favourite. Mango and Pineapple just seem to taste so perfect together. On toast, in yogurt or even drizzled over a cheesecake!

Fruit butters make brilliant presents, as we gave some to the kids teachers this year, I hope they enjoyed them.

A fruit butter is a sweet spread made of fruit  and sugar cooked to a paste. It’s very similar to fruit preserve, jam and jelly.Fruit butters usually come in wide-mouthed jars.
