Today’s Prompt: GREEN

Mango_Grove,_Nueva_Ecija.jpg (604×453)

This green mango orchard reminds me of my home in Comilla, Bangladesh.Our orchard was in the back of our house. When the time came to pluck mangoes, our servant was delighted to get some. He knew he’d be able to eat as many as he could.

I loved raw mangoes more than ripe ones, we peeled the skin, sliced into thin shreds, used some cayenne pepper, a bit of sugar and milk, we mixed  the mango slices with the sugar, spices,and milk. and served them in fruit bowls, the taste was delicious.

My mom liked ripe ones more. We also used mango slices in lentil soup. It made the soup a bit sour and tasty.
