    Mangos - What to do with them?

    I have told you all about our crazy neighbor George. He is the one that lives about 1/4 mile down the road from us in a 200 square foot shanty with a dog and 35 cats all named Steve.

    Anyway, George showed up at our house yesterday with a case of mangos for us. (We have learned to never ask George how he comes to possess this weird stuff. He just does.) Mrs Inor and I were talking and I do not think either one of us has ever had a mango before. So we are not sure what to do with them. Can you make jam or mango butter from them? Or maybe more generally, what do you do with a case of mangos?

    MANGO SALSA!

    Add diced mangos, diced onions, diced jalapenos (optional), choped cilantro, lime juice and a dash of orange juice. Mix and chill, salt and pepper and maybe a dash of hot sauce if you want. Serve with Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken or Grilled Fish.

    Mangos are awesome! George did y'all a good one!

    Box may have "fallen off" a produce truck on it's way to Phoenix.

    Produce has a habit of falling off in certain places.

    Have fun with them, . . .

    May God bless,

    Mangos taste like soap "to me".
    To each his own, but the wife made Mango jam.

    im drawing a blank, I should have tons of ideas and here I have only 1
    It happened before, it can happen again.
    It happened there, it can happen here.
    It happened to that person, it can happen to you.

    I eat them from time to time both fresh and dehydrated, but never done anything special with them.

    I got nothing. Eat them.

    Though Slippy's idea sounds amazing.

    Mango's? You know I have asked certain women , what do you do with it? They yammered about how good they were, but with me, I don't like them.
    Now if they were ripe cantaloupes, that is another thing.
    1. I finished reading Blackhawk Down, the book, and it was very good. 2. I finished reading The Hunger Games, and it is wilder than the movie is.
    3. I finished Lone Survivor on CD, and I watched the movie, and the book is better. Everybody on that Team should have gotten the Medal Of Honor, but only one man lived. So there were no witnesses.[March 14, 2019]
