Just a quick post to say how much I love mango season. It starts with alphonso mangoes, and now we’re well into the honey mango phase of summer.
I’ve always got one eye out for these little fellas, which have travelled all the way from Pakistan and are to be found outside corner shops and on market stalls, proudly sporting little tinsel swatches and wrapped up in tissue paper, ready to be eaten with yogurt or in salads or just as they are.
According to a shopkeeper in Hackney Central who sold me a box of five for just three quid, they are going to be around for another two months. Get em while you can!
