When you have a ...

...lot of these,

 you make chutney.



Considering our odd weather, we have a good crop this year. So more mango smoothies, sharing with neighbours and anything else I think of using them for.
Ours is only an old 'common'. One of my walking partners is eyeing off the tree in my back neighbour's yard - it's a 'Bowen'.  For those of you who don't know their mangoes, a Bowen (or to give its correct name - 'Kennsington Pride') is the pick of the crop. She's a north Queensland born and bred girl and my old 'common' is just that, common.  ;-)

Take care,
Kayly

Absolutely KPs are the pick of the crop - but where does 'Common" fit in?? I know Calypso and the RE?? neither of which I like much . . .

Shame Im not a neighbour! Chutney looks great! KPs are the best but Im sure your "common" is good too!

The 'old folk' in the street where I grew up used to call the 'common' mangoes, 'turpentines'...
