I loooove magoes, every time I pass a veg shop I pick one up and smell it! naughty I know...it gives me great pleasure.
Am not smart enough to use in cooking but don't do much exotic cooking on my own anyway (unlike you Finy the master!)
Mangoes are like weeds up here!!! I always end up losing more to the bats and the possums than what I eat myself or manage to share with others!! I love drying them more than anything else! Properly dehydrated mangoes are such a sweet treat and make the best gift for people who live far away as they weigh almost nothing! Very Moreish indeed,full of natural fibre and also of course sugar!! But Oh!!! so Yummy!!! They can be used for sweet and savoury dishes,fresh frozen or dried, and are something which I NEVER spend money on EVER!!!!
Gently warm ( not cook or boil) slices of mango with a little finely grated ginger and a sprinkle of cinnamon then keeping slices intact , drape them over vanilla ice cream.
FINAL TOUCH sprinkle a few jewel like pomegranate seeds over the top for colour contrast and sparkling bursts of tartness in the velvety deliciousness of the mango . Easy, fast and WONDERFULLY decadent.
