Ingredient Selection Tips
- Melons are not contaminated with pesticide residues. But still better to buy organic ones. We choose cantaloupe melons in this recipe because it is readily available and the flesh is really soft. When selecting, use your thumb to check the skin. Make sure it is firm and there are no bruises or cracks. You can also smell its stalk as it will have that “melon scent” when already ripe.
- Mangoes have a lot of fiber, and contains the necessary nutrients. But its skin collects pesticide residue, so make sure to buy organically produced mangoes. Did you know that mangoes are also meat tenderizers? It has enzymes that make it possible, thus they are also a favorite for marinades for meat.
- Excess fresh fruits can be stored in a cool dry place in the cupboard and can stay there for 3 days. Best to make it into puree while the flesh is still firm.
