If you like mangoes....

….get down to an Asian market asap. The Pakistani Honey Mangoes are in season - and it’s not a long season - but these are the kings of Mangoland. They are nectar and ambrosia combined. They have more flavour and juice than any mangoes you’ve ever tasted and are best eaten with no-one else around, in old, waterproof clothes, while hanging over the sink.

And a friend has just brought me a box of five!

    Cor! Never 'eard of 'em but they sound wonderful. Ipswich is a cosmopolitan place but no Asian markets. If you have a thing for sauerkraut however you're quids in.

    Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow with your grandson.
    Of course, you will share your mangoes with him, won't you?
