I love fruits, but I’m not always lucky when I buy them in the supermarket.
Especially mangoes. I used to buy them because they look gorgeous and yellow. But they don’t always turn out as expected and go to waste.
Turns out our cook Lydia used to be a mango vendor in the market. She said people in general don’t want to buy green mangoes, so they have this method to make them turn yellow fast, in order to sell them. The yellow mangoes are a disappointment because they’re not sweet.
My friend Lorraine sells mangoes from Zambales. They come in a box of 16 and you can pick them up in the San Juan area for Php 550/box. The same product sells at S&R for Php 700+.
You have to wait for the green mangoes to ripen and soften before you put them in the chiller.
So instead of drinking Coke on these hot summer days, I have a mango for breakfast and merienda. It keeps me from eating chips and soda. Plus my kids love them!
