Help your customers bring a bit of tropical sunshine to their holiday tables. The Mango and Cranberry Sauce recipe is an ideal way to do jazz up a traditional favorite. Display mangos with cranberries, alongside the Mango and Cranberry Sauce recipe card and get mango movement you’d never expect during the holidays.
Be sure to look down the road and plan your mango promotions for the next 60 days. Great opportunities for mango sales are waiting where you least expect them. The NMB has header cards and tearpads with these recipes available at no charge to U.S. retailers.
All through the holiday season, your customers have reasons to raise a Champagne flute with good cheer. Mango puree turns a ho-hum toast into a true celebration! Check out the Mango Bellini recipe, and be sure to display mangos near your Champagne, Prosecco and sparkling wine display this season.
• Tommy Atkins mangos from Brazil and Ecuador: This mildly sweet mango has firm flesh with fibers throughout. A dark red blush often covers much of the fruit with green and orange-yellow accents. This variety may not provide visual cues, so squeeze gently to judge ripeness.
