Champagne Mangoes

June 2nd, 2010

Oh joy. Oh bliss. It is champagne mango season. Apparently. Whole Foods has them by the thousands and is selling them for the ridiculously low price of $10 a crate. Somehow, I had forgotten how amazing they are and limited myself to three individual pieces of fruit today.

Tomorrow I shall be returning to buy an entire crate, which I plan to live off for the next few days.

I’m not sure what it is about the wee yellow champagne mangoes that makes them so heavenly. They’re considerably smaller than their orange and green brethren and perfectly sweet. And perhaps this is just luck, but I’ve never had one that didn’t ripen correctly (a constant problem with regular mangoes).

My biggest issue now is that I can’t immediately call to mind cooking recipes that use mango. I know I have a few that I love, but can’t remember what they are or where they are. I vow to round up all my mango recipes in one place so that I am ready for this type of event in the future!
