Default Mangoes

My darling wife loves Mangoes, (I don't) but she is a messy eater, juice goes allover, lately I've been rushing over to her with a towel. Today I bought her three beautiful Mangoes but before I went out for them I watched three short YouTube videos showing how to cut a mango. The first thing I did after arriving home was to sharpen a suitable knife and away I went with perfect results. Whilst YouTube has lots of rubbish, it also has lots of useful information.

Harry, try some dried, salted, mango. That is the only way I can stand mango. Green coconut on the other hand is wonderful.

If you ever want a new food experience, try durian. Never tried it myself, never could get past the smell. It is fairly popular in Thailand, but a lot of places bar it, and often not allowed on buses, trains, etc. They even make a durian ice cream. Be advised tho, never walk under a durian tree. It is a large, spikey, fruit, and has been known to kill people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and one fell on their head.

Harry & Theo,just the opposite at our house.My wife hates mangoes & I love them.I just ate one about 2 hours ago & always use the method as described above only when leaning over the kitchen sink. I don't think I could eat durian.From what I've heard they smell like rotten eggs but taste fantastic

Thanks for the info. Theo but I'm not tempted.

Juice dripping off your chin might be part of the mango eating ritual.

Durn. Forgot, I did use to eat mangos. Before the dried salted ones. Been about 49 years so didn't come to mind for awhile. Used to get sliced green mangos off of food carts, along with a mixture of coarse salt and coarse sugar to dip the slices in and then eat. Some people used to get ripe mangos the same way, but I never could stand ripe mangos.

Those food carts had some gooood stuff. Like fresh pineapple, and the mangos. One used to come up the street I lived on and usually parked close to my apartment building. Had a huge kettle, with a fire under, and at a rolling boil. Had bowls you could eat from, but my girlfriend would take out two large bowls and get them filled - the price started at 5 cents US, 5 cents at a time, up to a 25 cents US, all according to what you got. Basic was just noodles. I used to get the 25 cent bowls, with noodles, fish balls, beef balls (actually water buffalo which is the same as regular beef, just a bit coarser, but same taste), not sure what else, and it tasted great.

The famous UK entertainer, the late great Sir Terry Wogan, always insisted that mangoes and melons should only ever be eaten "naked and in a bath".
Cant argue with that.

Mom has 4 mango trees, 2 ea hayden, 1 common and 1 white pirie (the sweetest) down from 6 trees. Each mango season people walk around with mango pickers and steal most of her crop. I told her to get a pit bul but she wants a german shepard to guard her trees.

If they steal at night, motion sensor lights would likely scare most, if not all, off. My personal preference (don't think a 12 ga would be appreciated by the local law) would be game cameras, the type with no visible flash. Then could turn over the picture to the local law, and charge them with criminal trespass and theft. Oh yes, be sure to post no trespassing signs, that also say violators will be prosecuted. A lot of signs, game cameras, and I think I'd go with an electric fence also.

My eldest brother who live at Bundaberg,in Queensland,has a mango tree in his back yard and every year it is loaded with fruit until flying foxes & human thieves strike.
Harry, have you tried eating a mango when it is not quite ripe? More of a sweet /sour taste & so delicious. James jj777746.
