Tips –

  • You always can freeze chopped mangoes in packs in the freezer when the season comes to play. This way you’ll always have some handy to eat without having the fork out silly amounts when it’s off season. When picking mangoes, smell it, the fragrance is a good give away the more pungent the sweeter it’ll tend to be.
  • If you have a small freezer you might find raw cheesecakes best made in (rectangular) loaf tin, this could also mean saving up half the portion for an emergency dessert for times you have unexpected guest over. Cover it well with cling wrap and it’ll save in freezer for up to a month.
