And I Can Cook, Too

Horsing Around

The Horse Mango is native to Southern Asia. It has a green and yellow peel and a bright orange flesh. Not eaten raw, it is typically used for chutneys and curries. If eaten before it is ripe, the sap will irritate the skin and cause a rash. Which is probably the real reason they cut down the mango tree in my old back yard.

    Good for you! on finishing your coursework. It must feel good to have that part of the work behind you.

    Any kind of mango, horse or otherwise, gives me that mouth rash thing. Same with taro leaves.

    Yes, taro leaves will do that to you, which is why you have to cook the them for hours. And let's not get started on elephant ear!

    I discovered the evils of mango in July when my calves erupted in extremely ugly discomfort. Ah, the joys of living in paradise...
