A new fruit to try

 I've never had a mango before. It was given to me by Carol, in the bag of veg I get for walking Billy. I have never bought one from a shop. What to do with it? What's inside, pips like a melon, or a stone like a peach? cut it open and have a look. The skin was tough, I sliced through it and was able to peel it back exposing the flesh. Then cut pieces off it with a small knife. There's a large flat stone in the centre. Tastes alright.  

Let's see what it is like in porridge. Yum, yes, that will do nicely. 

Must get some jobs done around the house after skiving off yesterday. Windy but dry outside. A Billy walk planned for this afternoon. 
Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip.   ilona

    1. I think this one was ready for eating. I've had it for almost two weeks, and the skin was becoming wrinkly. It was softish and sweetish.

  5. Cut a strip of each edge, the cut off each cheek from the stone...skin down, cut a chequerboard pattern, bend it backwards and the cuts will open and the cubes will pop off the skin easily and leave less flesh on the skin.
    I got hold of a secondhand dehydrator, great for drying fruit when you get a load cheap. Makes for good nibbles to have in your pocket when walking

  7. Gosh, you have been missing out on one of the nicest fruits out there. Glad you enjoyed it but I don't care for them when they have gotten overly ripe and mushy.
