Mangoes are in season and although the majority of them are coming from the Northern Territory presently, it won’t be long before we’ll be eating Queensland mangoes. When mangoes are in abundance and inexpensive as they are now, I say make the most of them any way you can in your cooking. I devised this recipe the other day, as I had a fruit bowl full of mangoes and a large tub of beautiful local yoghurt from Maleny Dairies* in the fridge which needed to be finished up.
When you see mangoes at your local farmers market, you know summer is definitely on its way. Whilst the mangoes that are available at the moment are mainly coming from Northern Territory, it won’t be long before we’ll be enjoying Queensland mangoes. Mangoes are such a versatile fruit, and can be used in savoury dishes, drinks, baked goods and desserts to name but a few! One of my favourite ways to cook with mangoes is this Mango Pie, a recipe I developed quite a few years ago but find myself making over and over again. The pie filling is luscious – creamy, fruity but not to sweet. I like to make my pastry from scratch, but if you’re pressed for time just use a sheet of defrosted shortcrust pastry. Either way, your guests will be coming back for seconds, I promise you!
It’s mango season, and mangoes have arrived in abundance! Make the most of this gorgeous fruit which can be used in many dishes, both savoury and sweet. Some of my favourite ways to use mangoes include adding cubes to a Thai Curry, making Mango Daiquiris, baking a Mango Pie (recipe to follow soon, watch this space!) and in this delicious Mango Salsa. It’ s simple to make and pairs wonderfully with chicken, pork, duck, prawns and all seafood. Enjoy!
