Ataulfo Mangos – aka the Yellow Mango from Mexico is now in season! Although smaller than the red and green skin varieties, it usually has a thinner seed that allow more of the fruit to enjoy! The flavors are also a little more tangy and tropical, almost caramel-like when they’re fully ripe. If you haven’t tried one yet, pick one up today!
Mangos are delicious to just bite into themselves, but if you want to jazz up a meal for the family, try this jam as a side, a marinade or a sauce! It’s great over fish, chicken, rice and even dipping for veggies and empanadas! YUM!
