Except... I got distracted halfway home, and bought eight mangoes. I think I went a little over the top considering that tomorrow morning I am heading off on a three day trip to Canberra, and the mangoes were so ripe that juice was oozing straight out of the bags onto the countertop.
First, I pureed three, and made them into ice lollies. No added sugar, no added water, just pure mango pulp, and obviously I helped myself to lots of spare puree, and despite being full to the gills with mango, I can't wait until they're frozen. Surely that used all of the mango? Nope, I still had five left. So I ate one. That didn't really help, as I still had four...
So... I made spiced mango chutney and mango conserve (not really jam, as it has very little sugar to mango ratio).
MMMMM... does that mean I have to make curry next, so that I have something to eat the mango chutney with? Or should I brave what awaits me behind the closed door of my bedroom?
Mango Chutney in the making:
The finished product:
2/3rds of the baby chubbness that I left behind on the Sunshine Coast (the 2 year old wasn't interested in sitting still for a photo)
