Mango Season

I don't know about you all, but I LOVE mangoes! Not so much to eat them, because I'm a little bit allergic, but they're just so pretty!

I love the colors- the raw green, in between yellow and ripe red. And of course the bright orange insides!

Pile them up in a bright bowl, or stack them on a tiered server and they go great with a bright spring table!

Now, lest you think I buy fruit just for decorating purposes, Hubby does love to actually eat mangoes. And I can usually safely steal a bit or two without adverse reaction!

If you're interested in tasting mangoes but are a bit intimidated my the fruit itself (the flavor can vary widely in different varieties, and it's hard to get good sweet ones in the US!), then ordering a sweet Mango Lassi from your local Indian restaurant is a great place to start!

Doesn't that look yummy?

If you happen to have an Indian grocer near you you could also look for canned mango pulp:

which is a fantastically sweet, thick syrup made from the ripest of mangoes and is HEAVEN over vanilla ice cream!

Bon Appetit!
