Mango-Centric recipes sure to bring in some needed holiday cheer!
It’s been a heck of a few years and it’s looking like the year ahead isn’t going to give us too much of a COVID break. But if we have learned anything in these past COVID years, it’s how to find and feel the joy regardless of our circumstances. How to move past the difficulties and support each other and our communities, which is for us on both sides of the border.
We anticipate another difficult season with climate change, COVID and the general problems of the world that seem to keep coming at full force! We are hunkered down with our families, resting and celebrating for the next few weeks feeling gratitude and love and preparing for the 2022 season which will begin at the end of January. Whatever will happen in 2022, we promise that we are here to bring much more #MangoJoy than ever before and are always prepared to do so…
So regardless of if you are traveling this holiday season, or staying put, be kind and loving to each other. And seek and feel joy!
Here are a few of our favorite holiday recipes from the Crespo Organic Kitchen that are certain to bring more cheer into these years ending!
