’tis the season

a Julie mango

It’s mango season in Trinidad and they are starting to drop. I have a Julie mango tree in my yard. yay! the Julie are are a coveted type of mango along with the Starch Mango (which I don’t like- waaaay to stringy, and gets up all in your teeth, bleh!). Anyway, mangoes make great chow – a blend of salt, vinegar, onions, pepper (habaneros), chadon beni (a type of local cilantro) and whatever you like. You can find guys on the highways in Trini selling bags of chow. Trini’s will make a chow out of any fruit. I will try to post a picture of the chow and the dudes on the highway.
