@FPSouthoftheBorder, vendors stroll back and forth across the beach selling all kinds of wares. Alex’s favorite is the mango man. Perfectly ripe mangos, peeled, spritzed with lime, salted, and peppered to order. It’s perfection in its simplicity. It’s hard to find perfectly ripe mangos at the grocery store, and if you don’t want to wait for the perfect moment of ripeness, I have a secret for you: Frozen Mangos. Find it in the freezer, frozen at the perfect moment of ripeness. Here’s my ode to the mango man, and his friend Mr. Agave. They’re sure to make any hour happy.
How to be Neighborly: Make any hour, happy hour!
