“I came up with this recipe when mangoes were on sale. I shared with some gals at work and both said that a spoonful was like a ray of sun. It can definitely cheer you up on a chilly March morning in the Midwest. With four mangoes, I added about 4 cups of sugar. This may taste great with a little dijon mustard mixed in and used as a dipping sauce or as a basting/marinate for pork, salmon, or chicken. (Time is approximate.)”
