Fruit Spotlight: Mango

Mango is one of our favorite fruits, and it is a treat in this house!  It is pretty expensive, and we need 2-3 mangoes for our family of 6 for one serving.  It takes some practice to pick out the perfect mango.  I like to buy them when they are just starting to get a little soft, then let them sit out on the counter for a day or two until they are ripe.  I buy conventional due to the price point.  Mango is on the list of lest contaminated fruits in terms of pesticides, plus you don’t eat the peel.  Ideally, I would eat 100% organic, but we are on a budget, so I carefully choose what I buy organic.  Visit this link to see the dirty dozen list.  Talk about delicious!  So the next time mangoes are on sale, stock up and enjoy!
