Best Mango Bread Recipe and Mango Salsa Recipe
Best mango bread recipe and a favorite easy recipe for mango salsa today too! Mangos have more vitamin C than oranges serving per serving and are deliciously sweet. Mangos are seasonal to summer where I live in Miami and this year there is a bumper crop! I can hardly keep up with how many are just falling off the trees. I peel them and take the meat of the fruit out and dice it, then freezing in zip bags for year round use. My best mango bread recipe is sweet and similar to the consistency of a banana bread. It can be sliced and eaten toasted with some butter or jam for breakfast or for a snack or dessert.
Mangos come in various varieties and are available at the grocery store, sometimes year round. Try and select mangos that are firm but not hard and let them ripen on the counter. They do not need to be refrigerated but I find that if slicing to eat or for a recipe an hour in the fridge makes the slicing easier.
If you’ve never had a mango before you might be surprised at how large the pit is. Slice into the skin all the way to the pit, making four lengthwise cuts. Then peel off the skin and start slicing the fruity pulp to the pit to remove. It can be a bit of a messy process slicing a mango and some are easier to slice than others.
