My Sipsong Indira Mango Magic

June 8, 2019

It’s not for the simple minded, its weird and fun and complex, as I like it!

I often hear that my recipes seem complicated. I also hear once given a chance and actually made, they are easily executable, work well and are enjoyable to make.  In the kitchen (and maybe life) I teeter between the quick-and-easy and the more-steps-than-usual (but still easy). It’s kind of like walking many miles; the walking part is easy; the many miles part takes  simple action and will.

This recipe is seemingly complicated. It has a lot of steps and many ingredients. It offers deeply exotic rewards, but requires will… and work. Sometimes I get a weird idea, and it unravels into something even more weird. But as my therapist always says about my unraveling, I always land somewhere pragmatic. This recipe is just that.

Crazy Mango Flowers

April 7, 2019

Is the perfect Spring cocktail/mocktail with major flower power

I’m infatuated with the floral qualities of mangoes and discovered it’s possible to make these lovely notes pop even more when you combine them with actual flower essences. Floral noted spirits, floral bitters and actual flowers- combined with mangoes, gives my floral obsession  more flower power! This drink is the result of that power and my obsession.

Ariana Grande Creates Mango Frenzy

March 18, 2019

I make dreamy mango moon milk with Ariana Grande Sweetener in her honor

It’s not every day I pay attention to pop music. Today my mango google alerts were pinging me with a slurry of mango talk and Ariana Grande. I was intrigued from the get-go. Any pop star of her caliber giving juice to sweet mangoes just makes me smile. Does it surprise me? No, everyone loves mangoes. That’s the point of this glorious business that I happen to be smack in the middle of. I’m happy when others shine the light on this beautiful fruit, grown by amazing, hard-working people all over the world. Continue Reading…

Winter Citrus & Mango Frenzy

February 7, 2019

Magic happens when mangoes meet winter citrus

I am lucky to live in California, a place where citrus literally falls off  trees in winter and brightens our rain soak days. Our grocery stores and farmers markets are brimming with a variety of  brightly hued choices  and my neighbors give me buckets of Meyer lemons,  mandarins, oranges as well as a cluster of other varieties.  So we may have went a little crazy in the Crespo Organic Kitchen the last few weeks creating recipes with these offerings.  Mangoes compliment citrus perfectly by balancing with sweetness,  eliminating the need for excess sugar. The perfumed nature of ripe mangoes balances the deep rich flavor of citrus peels. We are quite pleases with these recipes and think we offer something for everyone – sweet and savory. Its a celebration of the magic that occurs when mangoes are paired with citrus!
