Mango

Mangoes are juicy stone fruit (drupe) from numerous species of tropical trees belonging to the flowering plant genus Mangifera, cultivated mostly for their edible fruit. The majority of these species are found in nature as wild mangoes. The genus belongs to the cashew family Anacardiaceae. Mangoes are native to South Asia, from where the "common mango" or "Indian mango", Mangifera indica, has been distributed worldwide to become one of the most widely cultivated fruits in the tropics. Other Mangifera species (e.g. horse mango, Mangifera foetida) are also grown on a more localized basis.

Mango Sorbet Ingredients 4 cups diced fresh mangoes 1 tsp lime juice or vanilla- which ever you prefer, but don't use both! 1 cup sugar (this can be adjusted based on your taste and the sweetness of the mangos- start with half the amount and just give it a taste.) 3 cups ice Directions Place ingredients in blender in the order listed. Turn the machine on ad slowly increase the speed to high and blend until smooth. (Hopefully about 30 seconds.) At this point, you can serve immediately as soft serve sorbet or you can spread the sorbet in a shallow dish and freeze for a few hours to harden up a bit.

Use fresh mozzarella. Sprinkle with lime zest and sea salt to finish.

Fun and Simple Way to Eat a Mango!

My mom showed me how to do this a while ago, and now that's pretty much the only way we eat mango! It's really easy to make and eat, and keeps the mango from slipping out of your hands or off your fork. Mango is delicious any way you eat it, though! :-)
