How to make it

  • Place water, sugar, vinegar, and star anise in a saucepan and bring to a boil; making sure the sugar is fully dissolved.
  • Cook at medium heat until it reduces slightly.
  • Strain and let cool.
  • Add mango and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  • In a large sauté pan over medium heat, sauté shallot and garlic for a couple of minutes until softened.
  • Add rice and cook, stirring, 2 minutes, until the rice becomes translucent.
  • Add white wine, stir, and continue to cook until the liquid has reduced to about three or four tablespoons.
  • Add about ½ cup stock; reduce heat, and cook, stirring until almost all of it has been absorbed.
  • Continue cooking, stirring, and adding stock (½ cup at a time), when previous addition has been absorbed, until rice is al dente and the risotto is creamy (about 15–20 minutes).
  • When the rice is done, remove it from the heat.
  • Drain the mango and add it to the rice, along with the chives, the Romano cheese (if using), and the sun-dried cranberries.
  • Season risotto with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

    Hi Dond! Yes, this one is from the Waring House Inn (P.E.I.), and I make this one too. Never thought about trying marscapone...yep, that would be VERY rich! Great post!

    Two things - 1. You gotta add this recipe to my company's website. It's perfect. ( If you like sun dried cranberries you're not going to believe the fruit we sell. Okay, I'm biased, I work here, but seriously, our cranberries taste like cranberries, not the sugared garbage you buy at the grocery store. Ours are tart and plump and slightly puckered - totally perfect in texture and tangy explosive flavor. When I have a bag of these I can barely keep them out of my mouth.
