As of this morning, I still had three qt. sized bags of sliced mangos from last season in the freezer. I have three mangos on the kitchen counter in a paper bag with an apple in there because my sister showed up with them this weekend. I have a neighbor who has promised me more mangos than I can possibly use, it's a bumper crop this year and she has two mature trees. There's another neighbor who has a tree and is always happy to share because she's allergic to the sap.

I decided to try making a mango cream pie with a meringue crust, thinking it was about time I fired that KitchenAide up!

After perusing several recipes, I found the one! It called for unflavored gelatin. I know I used to have that but after a search of the kitchen cupboards, had none. I probably gave it away when I went gluten-free, so figured maybe that was all good. How long can gelatin be good for? DP said he was pretty sure it doesn't go bad, and did a double search.

We walked to our nearby grocery store and they don't carry gelatin at all!! Fresh Market. (I wish it was still an IGA store.) So I walked another block to a Walgreens. They had flavored Jello, in both the traditional brand, their brand, diet, but no unflavored gelatin. No Knox for me!

I walked home, pulled out an old BH&G cookbook and found a recipe for banana cream pie. It said to microwave a mixture of 2 cups milk and 1/2 a cup of cornstarch for 5 minutes, then add part of the three egg yolks which you previously beat, then mix it altogether (sugar, salt, vanilla, all the usual stuff found in custard.) I thought that recipe was a gift for all the crap I'd been through. (I hate shopping, and we have this horrid little dog that went with us, I love her but she's truly a horrid wench. (Almost as bad as me, ya'll should be sending my dp sympathy cardds for having to live with her and me.) :D

Two hours after cooking and refrigerating the custard, I checked on it. It was the consistency of a light custard sauce. I noticed navy bean sized white lumps in it and decided I'd nuked corn balls in my lovely mango (finely chopped and drained through a sieve) pie filling.

I threw the whole mess in the blender, whirled away, and reheated all of it on a low heat, but let it come to a boil, stirring almost constantly. (I was washing all those dirty dishes in interum.) I just checked the mango custard. It's solid.

My dillema is that if I try to fill the pie with it tomorrow, it won't fit the shell. (Custard is in a 2 qt. bowl, pie shell is in a 9" pie crust. I guess I'll make the traditional chocolate pie tomorrow and share mango custard and chocolate meringue pie with the neighbors? (Pay it forward, right?)

Oh, I substituted orange liquour for the vanilla in both the meringue and custard recipes, just seemed like the right thing to do. I did go on a bit, sorry alot. :)

The other dilemma is...what the heck am I going to do with all those mangos?

Thank you both for helping me plan my blessed (or cursed) mango fest. I know the Dutch in me will make me use up each one. I bet Mango cheesecake is the bomb. I gave my 9" springform cake pan to hospice, do you think buying a used one is safe, or are there too many crevices? (Hate thoss cubby holds for gluten!) <_<

Just buy a new one. I scrubbed mine with a toothbrush and Bon ami but the thought of someone else's gluten skeeves me out.

I found a gorgeous antique bundt pan at Goodwill and almost cried from not buying it.

Your mango custard sounds very yummy!

I love mangoes. What a wonderful problem to have too many. I'd cut some up and freeze for later use.

Gawd, if I must, I must. (Buy a new springform pan.) I'm glad to know you're a fellow thrift store shopper. My BIL skeeved out once when somebody complimented me on my very cool top. I told them I bought it at Jesus House of Hope (they've since changed the name to House of Hope(local food bank/thrift store), he said "Oooh, that freak's me out, you're wearing dead people's cloths! Yuk!" I told him to get a grip, I by God washed it first, and maybe it was just somebody cleaning out their closet. OK, 9" or 10"? What size should I get the brand spaking new springform pan in? I do like cheesecake and margaritas, my tequila is getting older as we speak! :lol:

http://www.hawaiinew...e-pickled-mango




I love pickles! But what the heck is pound li hing mui?

I think mango pickles are a bang up idea. And I have a neighborhood of elderly women who would like nothing better than making some bang up mango pickles. They can never decide if exercise helps or hurts their arthritis. I tell them "use it or lose it, that's what my doctor says".

Thanks for the post, waiting (admittedly impatiently) for what that secret ingredient is. Never heard of it! :D :D

I use my 9" most often.

I've even thought of buying mini ones because it would be easier to make mini cheesecakes and freeze them since I now make 99% of all my desserts...and if a whole cake is there I'll eat the stupid thing.

If you make German Apple Cakes or stuff like that you may need the bigger ones. Mine came as a set.

Last time I was at that Goodwill it was obvious that they had a ton of stuff from one older woman who had excellent, excellent taste in clothes and shoes. I mean gorgeous. I am generally not THAT retro and it was all well worn but in excellent shape. If I had confidence in a local shoe shop or leather refinisher, and could sew at all I probably would have tried some of the shoes and clothes. They were simply divine. Found some evening gowns but weren't my size. That lady had TASTE.

Prickly, I'll get a nine incher. Thanks for the advice!

(But I'll wait for a coupon, that's just the way I am.) I've also found smaller is better. When I got rid of a bunch of stuff, I gave these really great 4" pans away to a neighbor. She didn't want to take them. I told her I'd ask for them back if I ever started baking again. I think they'd be to the bomb for making gluten-free quick breads (what Mom used to call banana or other breads.)

I bought 4 of them at the Habitat for Humanity pre gluten free. Paid a dollar. My neighbor was so upset that I'd give them to her for free. I really think those four inch loaf pans are perfect.

As to the end of the story, I stuck the mango custard in the meringue pie shell, put whipped cream on top, and delivered it to my neighbor with the the mango trees. She gave me a big kiss,ewww. :D
