Every year when summer rolls around, I throw a little party on the inside because with summer comes mango. Up the top of my list of favourite fruits (right there next to longans) mango has long been a love mine, my childhood dotted with memories of trailing after my dad at the local flea market and buying entire boxes of Bowen mangoes for $2.
Well, a box ain’t $2 any more (especially since I don’t get a chance to shop at the markets much these days) but I still love me some mango (also, not so fussed on variety any more – Calypso, Kensington Pride, R2E2, Bowen – they all taste pretty good to me!).
So with summer in full swing and my local supermarket overflowing with mangoes, I’ve been eating at least one a day and churning out a few mango desserts as well. One go-to recipe is mango sago, an easy, refreshing dessert.
I’ve used a few recipes in the past, but here’s a nice simple one if you’ve never made it before. Original recipe from Kawaling Pinoy.
Happy mango season!
