looking for mango puree

vox Jun 27, 2007 09:56 AM

hi folks,

they used to sell green 1 L cartons of organic mango puree (didn't have to be refrigerated) at the big carrot and now they don't.

anyone have a source/store on the east side of town that sells nice mango puree? not mango juice...i need it to have some viscosity.

please and thanks!

    Most large grocers (Loblaws, Dominion) sell canned mango pulp

      The stores that sell Indian food on Gerrard St. will have some good mango pulps. You may want to try the Alphonso or Kesar mango pulp as those are good. (that is the type of mango, not a brand name) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphonso...

        I second the mango pulp from the Indian grocers on Gerrard - the alphonso mango pulp is fantastic - I use it for ice cream, smoothies and mango puddings (the type you get at dim sum.)

        Goya makes a frozen mango puree. So check stores that sell Latin foods as well.

          Buy a couple of ripe mangoes, dice 'em up and purée in your food processor, et voila. Add a bit of oj if you want a more liquid texture.

            I doubt that the result will be as good as if you bought the mango pulp which I mentioned earlier in this thread.
