If you found this blog by Googling my name or by following sundry noxious links (you know where), please note that all claims that I was fired from my job are 100% false, as are most of the other things written about me. I don't know the people who are libeling me, but it's clear they have some imaginary axe to grind and way too much time.

More Mango

I did some sleuthing for Ashish, and just as I suspected, Queens has the answer.

There are also rumors of Food Emporium carrying Alphonsos, which is worth following up on before trekking out to Jackson Heights.

I recommend reading this piece by Sona Pai, featured in Best Food Writing 2008, on one Indian-American's complicated relationship with Indian mangoes and locavorism. According to Pai, the best way to eat an Indian mango is to roll it around til it's super soft and squishy, puncture a little hole near the stem, suck out the juices, and then peel to get at the meat. Mmmmm.
