In Season Now: Mangoes

mangoes

Why we love them: Often times referred to as the “King of Fruits”, mango is high in fiber, minerals, and vitamins A and C. It is one of the most widely consumed fruits in the world for its natural boost to immune system health, as well as skin, hair, and digestive health.

How to choose them: To find a ripe mango, squeeze gently to see if it gives. The harder the fruit, the less ripe it is. Unlike most fruit, color is not the best indicator for ripeness, so always judge by feel.

How to store them: Store mangoes at room temperature to help them ripen and maintain their flavor. Once it’s ripened, place the mango in your refrigerator for up to five days. If you wish to preserve it, you can peel and cube your mango in an airtight container for up to six months in the freezer.

Delicious ways to use them: Mangoes can add a sweet and delicious flavor to any dish. Between tropical fruit salads, delicious smoothies, and everything in-between, the possibilities are endless. Add it to tacos, serve over cooked fish, or even mix it into a yummy evening cocktail.
