WHAT’S IN SEASON
Calypso Mangoes are the daughter of Kensington Pride and Sensation mangoes, combining the best parts of both these varieties. They’re available now due to mango trees flowering earlier than usual in the Australian top end. Calypso mangoes have firmer, smoother flesh than other varieties, and a smaller-sized seed ensures there is even more flesh on each mango. Here’s a few delicious ways to serve them: • Place chunks of mango onto skewers with raw prawns and grill on the barbecue. • Chop or slice mangoes and add them to a green leafy salad with toasted almonds or macadamias, and serve with a sweet, tangy dressing. • Puree mango flesh, spoon a little into a champagne glass, then top with chilled Prosecco. • Puree mango flesh with a little caster sugar and fresh lemon juice, then swirl through slightly softened vanilla ice-cream. Freeze until firm. Serve scoops with Amaretti biscuit or wafers. • Freeze chopped or sliced mango flesh to use later in smoothies, fruit salad or on top of granola and yoghurt.
