New Mangoes!

Today the store did not have Alphonso mangoes.  Instead it had ataulfo mangoes.  These are yellow with a funny bent shape.  They are supposed to be another creamy/less-fibrous variety.  So I will be making another batch of mango ice cream. Which is good, since we're almost out of the last batch.

EDIT: These are in between regular mangoes and the Alphonsos.  A little harder to clean, less sweet, more fibrous, and the knife wanted to poke through the skin.  But they had an interesting citrus note.  For ice cream, I greatly prefer the Alphonsos.  But I think these would make a great topping for fish, chicken, or other foods commonly flavored with lemon.
