holy cow! thats huge! I have never really liked Mango... maybe cause I don't have any really good recipes for them... but they tasted just bland to me... Maybe I bought them to green or something.

I would know what to do with that big boy. Peel and slice it up. Mix up a dipping sauce of of a little bit of soy sauce, vinegar, salt and pepper and chow down.

I read about that in the paper today. It's sure a beaut. Imagine an avacado that size!
The only way I've tasted mango is in Dole canned Triopical Fruit Salad...love that stuff! There was a special on mangos at the market the other day, but I don't know how to pick one out. What do you look for?

To pick a mango, look for an unblemished yellow skin blushed with red

It looks delicious! We have a couple mango plants but the fruit is only 1# to 1 1/2#. Our property never gets as warm as it should for the mangoes to ripen properly. They are good anyways!!!

Michael Chiarello has a mango dessert I would really like to try. It sounded so good. I will post it and see what you think. I think I would like a mango salsa, also.

Mango Dos Leches Recipe courtesy Michael Chiarello
See this recipe on air Sunday Jun. 26 at 1:00 PM ET/PT.
6 eggs, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups whole milk, scalded
12 ounces mango puree
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 mango, diced
Dark rum
Brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Whip the eggs, sugar, and salt until tripled in volume.
Fold in the flour.
Pour the mixture into a parchment lined 9 by 11-inch baking pan and
bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Remove the parchment paper and return the cake to the pan.
With a fork, poke holes all over the top of the cake.
Combine the condensed milk with the scalded milk, mango puree,
almond and vanilla extracts, and pour over the cake.
Allow the cake to soak in the liquid for 2 hours.
Serve with diced mango marinated in dark rum and brown sugar.

That recipe sounds great - I LOVE mangoes. Mangoes are hard to find in my neck of the woods. I would be in heaven if I had a 5 lb mango - wow!
