I have a new obsession – drying mangoes.
My friend Mirjam taught me that you can dry sliced mangoes on a piece of cotton fabric, draped over a clothes drying rack and covered with mosquito netting, in the sun for 1-2 days… and you have wonderful dried mangoes.
And since it’s mango season here in the southern hemisphere and you can get local mangoes for about 3 cents apiece, my “dehydrator” has been in use all week. Â We’ve done quite a few mangoes, but also some apples and peaches.
My sticky assistant likes dried fruit, but especially favors the apples. Â She never turns down dried mango though, and now we’re looking forward to having mango all year long!
