  • Can you freeze mangos???

    DH brought home 10 large mangos and I have no idea how to use for many up at once.  I am going to make a big batch of mango salsa...but thought maybe I could freeze up the rest. 

    thanks

     i was going to say the same thing.. i've seen them frozen so i dont know why not...   i would freeze them single layer if you can though... or else they might freeze together in a lump since they are so juicey

    thank you...I think I will try it this weekend before they get TOO ripe.  Appreciate your answers.

    Dice them and freeze them in a single layer, maybe even shaking the pan after half an hour to keep them from sticking.  Once they're firm you can transfer them to a bag or other container.

    So now, what to do with them frozen?  I think they'd still be okay for salsa, but how about smoothies?  They'd be perfect there.  Just put some in the blender with milk and perhaps a banana and there you go.
