Selecting and Buying
Preparation and Use
These beautiful and tasty mangoes make excellent gelato, sorbet, tarts, jams, chutneys, preserves and pickles. Mango cubes deliciously enhance pancakes or waffles. Add this delectable fruit to fruit salads for sumptuous flavor and texture. Perfect accompaniment for poultry and roasted meats. Sauté; serve with grilled chicken. Once ripe, give this fruit immediate attention as mangoes do not keep well. Do not refrigerate as chilling diminishes flavor.
