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. We’ve done quite a few mangoes, but also some apples and peaches.
My sticky assistant likes dried fruit, but especially favors the apples. She never turns down dried mango though, and now we’re looking forward to having mango all year long!
