manillaWhen we lived in Mexico, we enjoyed the mangos very much.  They were manilla mangos,  which are unavailable here in the US.  Ataulfo

The closest we can get is an Ataulfo mango.

At the food pantry this Friday they had mangos that are more common in the US.  USThey do not taste the same and Beekeeper Brian does not like them.  So I decided I do not like them.

However, we tried a blackened chicken and mango recipe that was quite good.  I decided since I had an abundance of mangos, I would cut up and freeze some for use in this particular recipe.

As I was peeling and cutting mangos, I tasted one and discovered they are quite good.  Not the same as manilla mangos but good just the same.

I thought of the book Green Eggs and Ham.  After saying repeatedly, “I do not like green eggs and ham” the main character tries them and realizes he does like them.

I suppose I would eat mangos in a box, with a fox, in the rain, on a train…
