Ataulfo Mangos in Season
« on: April 14, 2011, 11:26:02 AM »
Yummo these guys are so dang good.  Just got thru making a big batch of Mango Salsa.

2/3 purple Onion (diced)
1.5-2 cups finely chopped Red and Orange Sweet tiny peppers (remove seeds)
15 Autalfo mangos split skint and diced (try not to macerate them)
1/4 cup lime juice add to it a generous tablespoon of Sea Salt and any heat ingredient mix a bit
                    (I used a 6 good squirts of Habenero Hot sauce....red pepper would be good too)
as you clean and dice the mangos, sprinkle em with a little fruit fresh
about 1/2 tsp corriander
and 1/2 tsp of Mex Oragano flakes

Optional would be like 1 finely diced Jalapeno~
When done and ingredients are all in a container drizzle the lime mixture on and GENTLY toss
until mixed fairly well.  Note this will NOT keep very long and you should enjoy it in a day or two
I try to cover it with cellophane down on the fruit cutting out the Oxygen much as I can.

Hope yours turns out good as mine did....wow yummo


Edit: Hint get a mango splitter

got me salivating. don't see them here in FL too often, but I love these mangos. there very smooth, almost no stringiness to them at all. I like your recipe. I make something very similar, though I use cilantro and not the coriander. But that sounds really good too.

I don't know if I've ever seen them, but I'll sure keep an eye out now.

I recall years back hearing about a guy doing a mango wit.  Always sounded good to me, although he claimed if you drank too much it had a laxative effect.

Yeah we do to here in CA but these ones are special and only seasonal as far as I can tell. They are also the only mango I will buy when it is already a little soft and starting to look less than beautiful

And if you don't mash the mango or at least heat it strange things might happen. There is a fair amount of papain (sp) in mango i beleive which will, I think, break down starches  in to more available sugars

Didn't know the proper name for them.  But they're the yellow ones that are smaller and less stringy than the green ones.  These are the ones the Thais seem to prefer.  Guess I can now go out and get Sticky Rice with Mango at the Thai places now.

I remember trying a mango lambic that was entered in the Cat 23 Longshot.  It was pretty good.

I just eat them for breakfast.  Grapefruit seem to be pretty much done, so the timing works well.

The salsa sounds great.  I've done something similar with pineapple.  Fruit salsas go well with fish.

Without seeing them, those sound like the ones we are talking about Gordon.  I hope you try
this recipe...let me know

When I lived in Mexico there was a huge mango tree in my neighbors yard. It overhung our property and shaded the driveway and overhung a corugated fiberglass awning over the outdoor sink an washer/dryer. When those fruit were ripe and would drop from 30-40 feet up and hit that corrugated piece at 2:00am. WHAM!

I miss that tree....I love mangoes.

A cool trick that my great aunt did to feed them to us. Instead of peeling them.
Filet the biggest two pieces you can on each side of the seed. You should have two decent chunks.
Now with the same sharp knife, score through the meat of the chunks without cutting through the skin.
Make a grid pattern with each score about 1/2 inch apart.
Once done, flip the skin "Inside-out" so that the convex shape of the skin is now concave and if you do
it right you will have the skin holding 1/2 inch cubes of mango to munch on.

If you do it right and the mango is ripe enough you will need to wash your face and hands of all the juice.
