but who exactly is rating it too high?
^sort of thing someone on dis would say
"Hey you know what fruit I rate highly?"
"No, do tell"
"The Mango. I'd give it 9 out of a possible 10"
"No way brah!"
And so on.
Like eating wet, but not bad tasting styrofoam. Also that taste is usually unevenly dispersed.
This thread is shite. Mango is amazing. Watermelon is amazing. Passion fruit is up there too. Nothing else can touch these fruits.
Strawberries get there in June, but let themselves down 11 months of the year. Kiwis should be there, but can't seem to get any kind of level of consistency.
The rest aren't really in the picture, for my money.
Can't believe this shit.
Great fruit taste, right here
Although, apart from rugby they're consistently shit at everything.
just because Smee has begun to pull back the cutesy Hobbit-town facade to reveal the evil corporates determined to destroy all who stand between them and their pursuit of filthy lucre.
It was one of your lot who invented the H-bomb too wasn't it?
if so, i choose that
everyone keeps BANGING ON ABOUT THEM, LATELY
wisdom says: don't put it in a fruit salad
or something like that.
maybe that's tomatoes
who was the first?
stop putting tomatoes in fruit salad then ffs
My housemate was on a health drive recently and kept going on about how great they are. Give it a rest, like.
Now I am a fan. Probably just tasted some below par mangos in the past, or something.
Nothing like it in the kingdom of fruits.
(apart from the fact they wouldn't be discussing fruit etc etc etc arf arf)
it's a nothing fruit for chumps
15 All-Time Over-Rated Fruits
You won't BELIEVE what's at #12!
*right this very second*, who don't even realise that pineapple is the best fruit and yet they have the same human rights as everyone else in the eyes of the law.
Absolutely ludicrous. It's only nice on pizzas.
Hawaiian pizza shouldn't be a thing, and even so it should be a thing that people grow out of by the time they hit double-digits
Pineapple is awesome, it goes spectacularly well with most meats, is great on pizza, and I'll tell you what, a disc of Del Monte Sliced on a hamburger is O the fuck K with me too.
Can you put slice of pineapple in a gin and tonic? No.
there's an enzyme in it which eats tissue, which is why we use it to soften and tenderise meat.
1. Go to an asian food shop
2. Buy a box of Pakistani mangoes. They are in season now, but only for another 2-3 weeks or so.
3. Put mangoes in the fridge.
4. When chilled, eat
They are absolutely a million times better than the rank sour shit you get in Sansbury's.
I realise i sound like one of those people who goes for a curry and says 'you know, this isn't what they actually eat in india' - but fuck it.
People need to know.
you might get some other yellowy orange ones from somewhere else, but it won't be from Pakistan.
EU has embargoed them as the pesticide they used on them is illegal and dangerous by EU environmental standards
they have to be pakistani though. Indian or from wherever else are not the same.
Mulberries are fantastic, but they dont suit the retail trade as they dont have a transport ot shelf life
or you'll be shitting silk
One day I got stuck in and ate an absolute truckload of them, then had an allergic reaction and my gums broke out in painful sores that made it excruciating to eat anything for about a week.
Man, fuck mulberries.
no flavour payoff
no effort, huge payoff
I'm gonna stick with lemons
it's not worth all that hassle of getting the skin of it
Score the flat side of each cheek vertically and horizontally. Grab each end of the cheek and start to fold backwards, as if you were trying to turn it inside out.
The cubes are then raised from the skin and can be easily sliced off for fruit salad, or just eaten as is.
The skin can also be sliced off the stone with ease and you can eat as much fruit as possible from around it. Or give it to a baby, very messy but they love it.
We call it echidnaising, and it was one of your cuntrymen that was struggling to peel a mango.
as you well know they are some country that latched onto us some way or another. Been trying to ditch them ever since.
What about when Mike Bull made the final of the pole vault at the 1968 Olympics? Was he jumping for "team NI"?
Wikipedia's surprisingly short list of Northern Irish sports persons.
let barry do the fighting
but he's right on this, mangos are pretty shit
They taste like they've already been passed through a digestive system
Mango not far behind tbf
Why the hell is it so available, when it's a fruit some people need to put sugar on. I mean that's failing its basic purpose so badly I find it personally insulting.
But of course the amount of food miles that would go into them getting to Europe/UK means you'd have to be an eco-vandal to eat one.
Stick to Creaky's mulberries and whatever else grows there.
Re:Food Miles, it's a bit more complicated than that.
from the other side of the world. Think of the energy that must be using up!
but, being written by a dedicated foodie, I suspected he just wanted to justify his wants for exotic foods as and when he pleases, so I did some googling and it turns out I was right.
Hate shit like this
so the study that Rayner based his whole article on was a comprehensively debunked, non-peer reviewed bit of research funded by NZ agro-business and entirely biased and scientifically irrelevant. Jay Rayner should be ashamed of himself.
As mentioned by georgiabeth upthread, Kiwis simply cannot be trusted.
plus I am relieved to here that lemonbrickcombo will not be messing with my mulberries
tropical fruits only really taste like they *should* do in tropical countries. no one has the right to judge a mango, avocado, passion fruit or pineapple until they've eaten one in Ecuador, Kenya, India, Malaysia etc.
(Not really. It was funny.)
The wife and kid eat the dried packet mango constantly, like healthy candy I suppose.
red seedless grapes for the win
Mango is great. Blend it with milk for a smoothie, even better only half blend lumps of it in said smoothie and get something halfway towards a smoothie, but not.
Green mango is great in Thai salads.
Typical mango is great in desserts.
It's messy as hell but fun to eat on its own. Tip to reduce messy- ness= put it at back of a fridge for few hours before planning to cut it. Much less squirting and sliming.
