A week before the mangoes were due for harvest, a branch broke off
So here we are with so many green mangoes.
A recipe that calls for green mangoes is Burong Mangga (Pickled Mangoes).
The usual way to do it is to cut the green mangoes into 1 centimeter
thick strips. Discard seeds. Place mangoes in small clean glass jars.
Add about 1 tsp salt and water barely to cover well the mangoes.
This will be ready to serve in 3-4 days.
Here is another recipe shared by chef Jackie Ang Po from Yummy
magazine (April 2009), perfect timing with our green mangoes!
