Today’s weather has decreed that Mango Season 2021 has arrived. I have placed a load of mangoes out by my front door for easy pick up (for protection from the weather). I will place the bin out by the street in better weather.
- Take what has been placed out, but do not pick fruit from any of the trees.
- You must supply tour own bags for pick up (hopefully reusable totes)
- Do not enter or remove any fruit from or enter, park in, any neighboring yards.
- Do not ring the doorbell.
- Additional fruit will be placed out as it becomes available.
RECIPES FOR MANGOS
Food dot com has a listing of mango recipes including Mango Pies and Tarts, Mango Canning, Mango Desserts, Salads, Smoothies; well, you get the idea, it reminds me of the Bubba shrimp scene from Forrest Gump. There seem to be just as many different recipes for Mango as there are for shrimp! CLICK HERE to view the online article.
Alexandra makes an outstanding mango salsa. The ideal party or tailgate dip.
The listed recipe for the Garlic Lime Grilled Chicken With Mango Salsa sounds like an absolute must try for the South Florida area.
