Liberian Stewed Mangoes with Cloves

 4 large ripe mangoes, peeled and sliced
150g sugar
180ml water
6 whole cloves


Begin by making a sugar syrup. Combine the sugar and water in a pan, bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute before taking off the heat and adding the cloves. Allow to cool completely. When the syrup is cold add the mangoes and return to the heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, covered, until the mangoes are tender. Take off the heat, allow to cool and serve in ice cream or compote dishes, garnished with cloves and blanched slivers of orange zest.
