My mom has blooged about po'e before. She gave you a delicious banana po'e recipe here. Well, I grew up with po'e thanks to my dad serving a mission in Tahiti, so I have always known about it and loved it.
When I went on a mission to France there were many Tahitians also serving there. In one of the first places I served (Montpellier) there was another missionary serving there and he was from Tahiti. I told him I wanted a good po'e recipe so I could make it. A few months later I saw him at a conference and he handed me a recipe for baked po'e.
You can make this recipe with many kinds of fruit. Banana, papaya. Whatever fills your heart with joy. I have been on a mango kick lately, and the last time I went to Costco I bought 6 mangoes, and the first thing I wanted to do was make po'e and top it with coconut cream. Although you can use which ever fruit you'd like, I'd highly recommend the mangoes. Mango is so good, and the perfect amount of sweet. Mango Po'e is probably my favorite.
My mom's po'e was made on the stovetop. But as this baked mango po'e recipe implies, you bake it in the oven!
For the coconut cream in this recipe just buy a can of cream and don't mix it. Take the cream right off the top when you open the can.
It is light, creamy, and heavenly.
So, now you know how to make po'e two different ways! Bake it in the oven, or make it on the stove top!Which way are you going to make it today??
