More Mangos, Please!

 

Does the summer have you stocking up on mangos? Make sure you have enough for both cooking and eating them fresh; once they’re home they’ll go fast! 
 
Did you know that a number of recipes call for unripe mangos? No need to watch the clock waiting for them to ripen. Rather, spend your time perusing our many mango recipes to find one that fits your palate! Unsure if your mangos are ripe yet? Give them a gentle squeeze. The softer the mango is, the more ripe it will be. If you have mangos that are reaching their peak, store them in the fridge for up to five days until you’re ready to tackle that mango recipe. 
 
The perfect recipe to use for very ripe mangos is Chef Allen Susser’s Ripe Mango Cake. Although this is considered a dessert, it makes a delightful breakfast or snack. There is nothing better than the smell of this cake baking in the oven; your home will smell delicious! Don’t be surprised if you find the neighbors standing at your door awaiting a slice! Maximize the cake’s ripe mango taste by allowing it to cool completely, letting all of the flavors soak in. If the cake is making its debut at a dinner party, don’t forget to save yourself a piece to enjoy as well!
 
 The summer may have us spending all day on the beach or at the pool, and the last thing we want to worry about is preparing dinner after a long day. Instead, let the slow cooker do all the work for you! We have the perfect, hassle free dinner recipe that also utilizes your stock of summer mangos for a sweet and nourishing twist - Slow Cooker Beef Short Ribs with Ginger Mango Barbecue Sauce. Simply combine all of the ingredients in a slow cooker and voila - six hours later dinner is ready! Try serving it over mashed sweet potatoes or as a sandwich, depending on what you’re craving.
