Weekly Mango Recipe: Mango Crisp

We are up to our elbows in mangoes! I'm not sure how many mango trees we have on the compound, but I can tell you it's more than a few. Every day, dozens of mangoes turn a beautiful, enticing, golden-orange color and fall to the ground. Ripe for the taking. If I can manage to beat the kids to the fresh mangoes, I get to enjoy a nice, juicy treat.

The older kids climb the trees to hand-pick the best mangoes (can you appreciate how high John Lemeri has climbed in this, very large, mango tree??)

Because of the ample supply of this delicious fruit, I have decided to come up with a new mango recipe every week to utilize them. The recipe this week was a take on my favorite Apple Crisp dessert.

Mango Crisp:
10 cups cubed mangoes
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 Tbsp water

Mix ingredients together and place in a greased 9x13 casserole dish.

1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, melted

Crumble topping on mangoes and bake at 375 until crust is golden.

I wish we had vanilla ice cream to go with our warm mango crisp...

Stay tuned next week for another mango recipe!

Will they still be there in a month? That looks SO yummy.

We met for 7 hours today planning for VBS. I am SO excited to come.

Got a shot yesterday and taking Typhoid pills though have felt a little feverish all day. Guess just a little reaction to it. But should be all set to come....
