3 Best Ways to Enjoy Mangoes in the Winter
Most of the time, you will find mango during the peak season which is summer. Unless you’re lucky enough to live someplace where mangoes are grown, you won’t be able to eat mangoes practically year-round. But like some other tropical fruits, mangoes aren’t fond of the cold. They should only go in the refrigerator if they’re fully ripe and you know you aren’t going to get to them for a day or two. If, on the other hand, you need your mango to ripen faster, grab some rice. Not sure how to pick and prep this tricky tropical fruit? We’ve got you covered.
The mango’s tropical taste and smooth texture lend themselves perfectly to cold soups, icy drinks, and frozen treats. But when the weather has us feeling pretty cold, we turn to mango dishes that are a little less chill-inducing. Check some ways that will make your Winters interesting with the sweetness of mangoes.
Stop relegating fruits to the fruit salad bowl. Bulk up a mango salad with bulgur wheat, quinoa, or rice. Keep it simple with a mango slaw, or enjoy mangoes paired with fennel. Try a chopped salad packed with apples, pears, mango, hazelnuts, and pomegranates.
