Mango Madness

We have several mango trees on our property, and the mangoes shown in the photograph above is of a different variety than the others. These mangoes are just beginning to ripen, and we've done some taste tests to determine which variety we prefer. And we prefer the other variety although this one is extremely photogenic--especially at sunset.

I've already made a delicious mango chutney from these mangoes, and now I plan to experiment around with creating mango lassis!

I do visit and I do comment and I was here. I did look at your picture(s) and I did read what you wrote about them. I could say how great you are and how beautiful your work is but alas I would soon run out of things to say on the next blog I visited, so I just left this to prove I stopped and said a few words on Sunday. Love em.

My Rheumatoid Arthritis hurts so I am using the same message for all.

Oh yumm...I could use some mango's right now for my "mango salsa". Hoping to plant a mango tree soon & watch it grow. Nothing a like a Maui kine.

I was just thinking of mango lassi or mango milk shake when I saw the title, Mango Madness.

I love mangoes and I usually get them at the grocery store for $2.49 a pack (peeled, sliced and ready to eat). I know that is an exorbitant price to pay especially since a mango probably costs 50 cents each. But I hate peeling and slicing mangoes (or worst, my fingers).

Yummy! I love mango chutney! And mango salsa! These really are pretty too. I can't believe in the 16 years I've lived here we've never been in a house with a mango tree. We've had lilikoi, papayas and pomogranites...and just this year the keiki banana tree that grew through our neighbors fence finally produced bananas...but they are on the side of the house and I think I forgot about them. They are probably over ripe now.
