Mango anyone?

So a couple days ago we had another rain storm... this is unusual for April. Usually this is the middle of hot, dry season. Well Jeff did a video about it that you can watch at our family blog. But my job was and is... what to do with all the mangos that our tree dropped in one day. Hundreds of mangos... I will give some away, let some ripen, and cut up and freeze a lot to use in cooking. Stop by for some mango sauce, mango cake or mango crisp if you can!

The loss of your tree is a very sad. :(
Could you dehydrate some mango? If you don't have a dehydrator and the weather isn't dry enough, you could put small slices in your oven on low heat. I have no idea how long it would take, but it is a thought.
Good luck with all that mango.

Oh Heidi....all those mangoes. I'm glad you have so many ways to use them. Don't you have a couple of smaller "manguiers" which may bear fruit next year? It must have been a powerful wind. But thankfully not as strong as the tornadoes which destroyed many homes and lives during this past week in the U.S.
