Hi Friends!

Mango is my favorite fruit for its sweetness, texture and variety.

It is a multifaceted fruit, which you can use in drinks, desserts, salads and savory recipes.

Taking advantage of the quantity and variety of mangoes found locally, I bought a box of 12 at a local supermarket for $3.99. What a great price!

 

To take full advantage of all the product, I gave myself the task to wash, peel and cutting into small pieces all of the mangoes. I froze the remainder for future use…
