Someone is eating mangoes as we see lots in our supermarket. But when we press them lightly we can tell they are almost always overripe. Soft mangoes are not easy to cut, squashy and taste too sweet. Choose firm mangoes even for normal eating, but if you are able to find harder ones then this salsa treatment makes for a delicious treat and kids love it as well as adults.
Mango Chow is my favourite way to eat slightly hard mangoes. Other than just eating them ripe a lot of people struggle to know what to do with mangoes. This very simple dish is a lovely healthy snack. Choose firm mango, peel and cut up into a bowl. Add spoon of sugar, spoon salt, small bunch coriander finely chopped, Ooft! Aged Scotch Bonnet hot sauce 1 tsp or less. 2 cloves garlic fine chopped and a little fresh lemon or lime. Mix and leave for 20-30 minutes to absorb flavours. Kids love this. Our boys would eat the bowl out in 2 minutes!
In addition to sumptuous tropical flavor, mangos deliver a host of nutrients and make healthy eating a delightful sensory experience. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that healthy adults consume 5 to 13 servings of fruits and vegetables every day (based on a daily consumption of 1,200 to 3,200 total calories). That’s where mangos come in! The versatile mango is available year round and adds delicious flavor to a balanced diet.
