Let me tell you. You have no clue how excited I am to see that mangoes are finally in full season. When I mean full season, I’ve been seeing mangoes in the market since late last year, but they never looked quite right and each time I asked my friends at the fruit and veggie market, they always said “they’re from Cotonou”. I want local mangoes, thank you! Although I appreciate the fact that Cotonou is probably closer to the market than the location from where the Nigerian mangoes are transported from, they are, in my mind, still considered “imported”. After all, they crossed a boarder. Anyhoot! They are here. I have lots of ideas on what to do with these babies, from desserts to cocktails. Stay tuned!
