This brings back a sweet memory of my first and only visit to Australia. Maybe I will write a post about it, though unfortunately I don't have any photos to complement it.
I remember a nice woman telling me she buys ripe mangoes when they are cheap, keeps them in her freezer and eats them like this, a sort of natural sorbet. What do you do with mangoes?

It's a given, isn't it?

What's not to love?

Mangos look and sound fantastic but any desire I might have for the taste of mangos was destroyed by that orange and mango juice that was so popular in my childhood! But I did see lots of lovely mangos at Parap Market in Darwin this weekend and thought it would be nice to have local mangos at our markets :-)

I too adore mango! Can't eat them too much though since we believe that mangoes are one of those 'heaty' fruit. But well, I do enjoy them as much as I can!

I treated myself to a Peruvian mango yesterday - shame on me! But it was wonderful, all slippery and drippy.

How can you not? Look at it- gorgeous beast.

Simona, I definitely want details and stories! What do I do with mangoes? Slice off their cheeks and eat them, raw. Beyond that they make a wonderful 'ice-cream' when mixed with bananas a nectarine or two then frozen. Guilt-free!

Exactly, Shula. Sexy, juicy mangoes...

Johanna! I know what you mean about that juice - it WAS awful. How amazing would it be to get them locally? I'm thinking a mango tree in my backyard would be beautiful ;-)

Good to know, Anh. I wondered if there could be consequences for over-consumption...

Rosa, I couldn't put my love into more appropriate words!

It's a spunky rump, to be sure Callipygia!

No you have not! Have I told you how much I love mangos? Thick slices atop a BBQ for a few moments is shear delight if you have not tried them that way!

Lucy said...

Ohmigod, Deb, that is a sensational way to cook mangoes! So simple, but why have I never thought of doing it?!! Glad you're home, too. And that you love mangoes as much as I do ;-)

Have I told you
how suggestible
I am?

Trying not to rely too much on long distance food BUT have a feeling I'm going to be picking up the one I saw sitting on the shelf in my local train station grocery on my way home from work (late and cold) tonight.

Thanks! :)
