While it is still early days, I have seen mangoes at the markets, and already eaten a few – yum. Won’t be long until they’ll be trying to move them by the box load and I can make my stock of Mango Sauce.
Mango Sauce has a special significance for my family. Mangoes were one of my mum’s favourite fruits. She’d look forward to them every year, even on the dry wheat farm where we grew up, far from any mango crops. She’d hunt them down, or friends would send them by freight.
She’d make Mango Sauce every year when they got too ripe or were cheap at the markets, and we would all be sure to get a bottle or two. This recipe even appeared on her funeral notes. Note it is called ‘The’ Mango Sauce recipe. Enjoy!
