I bought some awesome mangos, but too many of them...

Would any of you tell me what to do with them? I will eat on in milk shake (I love it that way), and I will also eat it in juice and fruit salad. But, is there such a thing as mango jam? Mango are imported where I live but those were very unexpensive and I love them. But I overdid in the quantity. And another question: how long will they keep in the fridge? Please HELP!!!

Your mangos are probably long gone now, but here's an idea for the future. We live in Florida & have mangos quite often. My daughters love mango smoothies. We blend yogurt, organe juice, mangos, and ice in a blender. It makes a great summer treat. It's healthy & sweet. We also use mangos in salad. I like to put them in a green leafy salad with shrimp topped with a citrus balsamic dressing.

Hiya CBC, Fantastic idea will have to remember that one myself. I like the idea of the Balsam as well very nice. Must taste wonderful how lucky to have mangos around. Also love the idea of making Smoothies too yummy. Very healthy recipes indeed.

i have a mango tree in front of my house. there will be a lot of mango if the mango season comes. mango can stay fresh for more or less than 1 week in fridge and you put it on the plastic bag. you can also make mango jam. it is delicious and easy to make. you can try to make it.

1. clean the mango's skin and wash throughly 2. cut it into slices. it is better in small pieces. or you can blend it if you like. i don't like to blend it because it is too smooth. 3. put the souce pan or pot on the stove with the small temperature 4. pour the small pieces of mango into the souce pan or pot, add some sugar. usually if i make 1 kg mango, the sugar is 1 kg also. but you can add as you like. 5. stir the mango and the sugar. you have to always stir well and don't leave it. 6. it is ready when the colour is turn into dark yellow. it is the way i make the mango jam. if you like you can add acid to make it more sour. i usually donot add water.

Mangoes are nice fruit but they can't be stored for a long time. I do think it is a good idea to make the mango jam because you can even do it at home easily. It is not the mango season here. So I hardly see fresh mangoes here. I have to wait for the summer. At that time I can buy a lot of mangoes and make mango jam at home. I love China
