This fruity compote can also be served with pancakes or waffles or even as a topping for angel food cake. If mangoes are unavailable, substitute nectarine or peeled peach slices. Be sure to taste the compote before serving; you may need to stir in a little more sugar, depending on the ripeness of the fruit.
