Ooooooo, another day of Month of Food! Today, our prompt is "make a dish using all seasonal produce." This is interesting, as here where I live we are still in the thick of summer weather. This time of year is known as the "wet season" in the Keys, typically we have rain for a little while every day or overnight. We've been in drought for years down here, rain is always welcome. Along with this rain comes beautiful soul-warming heat, most days are still well over 90 degrees with even higher heat indexes. Here our last mangoes are being harvested, and avocados are just starting to fruit. Keep your pumpkins to yourselves, I've got late summer mangoes and I intend to savor every last bite.
This video showcases what is seasonal for us in our area this time of year. Avocados and mangoes. I love mangoes, loathe avocados, yet this recipe is fantastic, and I will be making this one again for sure.
See you next time!
