mango is what I picked for my journey through childhood once again with my kids.
Growing up in India, the start of summer always meant (and still means) mangoes everywhere - on the trees, in the house, in the markets; and of all shapes, sizes, and varieties; and consumed in so many different ways -
the fruits - ripe, juicy, yummmy, drool-worthy fruit; and over 400 varieties to choose from..
the raw mango - tangy, sour, crisp spiced with a bit of chili powder and salt, and yet again drool-worthy in it's own way;
the pickles - so many different forms across India that it is difficult to list them all (but you can hear the smacking of lips all around);
the juices, milkshakes, lassi (ripe mango with buttermilk);
the spreads, preserves (murabba, anyone?), chutneys;
and more not listed here!
More mango memories with monkeys in them - photo below and the story in the link here..and a recipe blending east and west - mango pancakes
Q to the reader: What are your 'mango memories'? If not mangoes, then any other similar fruit memories from childhood - maybe cherry picking or strawberry picking or other...
