Chopping and juicing and blending and freezing all this fruit every day is a labor of love.

Woman arrested for mango-related shooting.  😳 

Let’s hope she doesn’t show up at Pine Island’s MangoMania this weekend.

I’m still working on a mango salsa recipe to call my own.  I’m always tweaking it.  Here are two fresh, simple ones to hold you over until I roll out my official best recipe:  this one with only 5 ingredients, and this one with avocado.  

Okra is coming in!  I made Florida ratatouille.  Next up: okra and corn fritters, skewers on the grill, and of course I have to pickle it.  

I learned to shuck and slurp like a pro in New Orleans with Julie Qiu from In a Half Shell.  I loved the Murder Points.  😋

Three Simple Rules for Eating Seafood:  Paul Greenberg explains why we should eat more seafood, especially filter feeders, and most importantly:  Choose American Seafood!!!  

Sharks!  Toby tells me about this while we’re swimming at Egmont Key: 500-pound bull shark recently caught off Egmont Key.    

Should swimmers worry about sharks?   I’ll try not to think about them eating sea turtles “like potato chips.”

      Hi Jennifer, If you type in ‘mango pitfalls’ in the search box on the right you’ll find a post on my method for slicing them. I’m working on video tutorial, too. I hope you like them!
