How Do You Eat/Peel/Open a Mango?

Recommended Posts

The mangoes that I got were called Honey Mangoes.  I have no idea where they are from though.  I was very nervous  because they showed shipping last Monday and I didn't get them until yesterday (Fedex).  I was glad to see that they were still ok and not over ripe or smashed.  I'd really like to find some around here but I bet I couldn't.  Possibly the Asian market in the big city???  I have been really wanting to go there but haven't because of Covid and only going places that I absolutely need to.

Is there a Sprouts store in the 'big city'? They usually carried a couple of kinds of mangoes in their AZ stores. Up here, I can get them at most of the grocery stores but I don't know what the KS stores are like.

I often see Ataulfo (sp?) Mangoes labelled as Honey Mangoes in Virginia.

@Shelby, in fact, looking at the Sprouts' sales flyer for one of the KS stores, I see Red or Honey Mangoes shown, 2 for $1. That's an excellent price! Good until June 30th.

Thank you :)  I will.  Still debating on periodontist this week.  Have a vet appt.  also, but it's curbside.  They come to your car and take furry babies one at a time.  Our puppy is due for shots.

@Shelby, are you a Costco member? Both here and in AZ, they often have ataulfo mangoes in their produce sections. You have to buy 6 which isn't a hardship for me. If I can't finish them while fresh, I throw chunks in the freezer. They can be used in cooking or drinks. I like to make my own mango chutney now and then and the frozen ones are great for that. Or to make mango bread.

I'm sorry - I'm really not trying to make anyone feel bad or like they're missing out... One of the things that I love about this community is that we have representatives from all over the world, with a huge host of experiences. I love reading about when other people experience something that I may never experience... or maybe I might.  Maybe some of the things I read here inspire my travel so I can get the opportunity to experience what they have. I understand that I have the opportunity to travel more often or to farther flung places than others and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do so. When I read about people in barbeque country talk about the stuff they can get, I love it, and I love knowing that no matter how good the barbeque is that i can get in NYC (some of it is pretty good), I like to keep it in perspective as to what is available all over.  One day I will make it to Franklin BBQ, or to eastern North Carolina for whole hog... but until i can get there, I can live vicariously through the stories I read here.  That's what I'm trying to do when talking about the Thai mangoes as compared to what is available in NYC.  As someone who has had both, I want to put things in perspective - I'm not trying to knock the NY available product - I'm trying to say (albeit maybe not very well) to people to try to imagine how good it could be.. so those who may never have an opportunity to see the things I've seen to live vicariously through me.

 

I do get your meaning. If you have had durian in SE Asia and then gotten frozen whole in the US - not the same animal. Probably why my dragonfruit experience was a let down. I like hearing  about different fruits but in general I savor what I can get from my local grown. I'll raise you some of my from down my hill plums to something that had to get a passport ;)  Oh and my odd mind always keeps the Fruit Detective in the neural annals  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Karp_(pomologist)

Most of the time, I make it the same way as banana bread, just subbing mangoes for bananas. There are several recipes out there, I haven't done much other than try coconut instead of nuts or add a bit of lemon/orange zest. But I like the mango and nuts combo, too. I use my immersion blender to somewhat liquefy the mangoes, but leave a few chunky bits.
