Mangoes Galore! (Or, how we learned not to look a gift horse in the mouth)

Our Neighbor's Mango TreeMango season is here!

Luckily, we haven’t had to scavenge around the neighborhood for neglected fruit bearing trees: our neighbor has a massive tree and a portion of the behemoth stretches directly over our back yard. Despite only a few branches hanging overhead we have been inundated with fruit! And since we wouldn’t dare look a gift horse in the mouth, here is how we have used the fruit – along with how we are storing it for when this season becomes a fading memory.
