Uses for unripe mangoes?
« on: June 14, 2017, 08:16:55 PM »
I had a branch fall today in a storm, which resulted in me having about 60-80 unripe mangoes on my hands.  :o

I made some mango powder (amchoor) earlier in the season with some unripe mangoes, but I'm not really looking to peel, slice, and dry 80 mangoes.

I've also seen mango pickles, which I will make, but with that many mangoes, I'll need all the ideas I can get. I'd hate to see them go to waste.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

You could make  Mango Chutney  (  ingredients: diced unripe mangoes,garlic,ginger,cloves, red chilli powder, salt, sugar, raisins). It stores for more than a year at room temperature. If interested in details please PM.
 Another option you can make a hot Mango Pickle . In this case I recomend you buy a ready made mix you can buy at Indian stores and follow the instructions on the packet.

The best use of unripe mango is making Mango Pickle.

I know this is an older thread, but we need to be getting our recipe ideas ready for the upcoming mango season  :D (including green mangoes). For an American twist, seeded and peeled green mangoes can be substituted for apples or peaches in your favorite cobbler recipee. I have used hard green Nam Doc Mai mangoes in place of apples (pictured) and softened green Valencia Pride mangoes in place of peaches. Both were excellent.
