MANGO, SLICED - Kosher/Gluten Free

MANGO-5

Description:

Temporarily Unavailable... Mangoes are native to Southeast and South Asia. Hindus referred to Mangoes as the “food of the gods” and the leaves are ritually used for floral decorations at religious ceremonies. The Mango is in the same family as poison ivy. Today Mangoes are grown across the world as a fruit tree in frost-free tropical and warmer subtropical climates. Mangoes can range in size from 6 ounces up to 4 pounds. The flesh is a deep orange and tastes roughly like a cross between a peach and a pineapple with an exotically sweet flavor. Mango Chutney is a popular dish in India; in the Philippines unripe mango is eaten with fermented minute shrimp paste which comes in sweet, salty, and spicy flavors. In some parts of South-east Asia, Mangoes are popular pickled with fish sauce and rice vinegar. Mango is high in Vitamins A and C and low in sodium and high in fiber.

Ingredient Statement:

Mango, Sugar, Citric Acid, Sulfur Dioxide (as a preservative), FD&C Yellow #6.

Mechanically dried and contain sulfites.

Sweet glutinous rice flavored with coconut then served with sliced Mango on top is a delicious dessert. A traditional Indian drink uses a mixture of yogurt and milk as the base along with Mango, then flavored with cardamom. Pieces of Diced Mangoes can be used in ice cream; they can be substituted for peaches in a pie; or put Mangoes in a blender with milk, a little sugar, and crushed ice for a refreshing beverage. Traditional uses are for any baked dessert, rice pilaf, puddings, pastries, bread, muffins, snack mixes, and cereals.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

There is no preparation needed for dried fruit. If used in baking, you may want to rehydrate. To rehydrate dried fruit, pour boiling water over the fruit and let sit covered for 5 to 10 minutes. Drain well before using it.
