South Florida Mango season is here! Take a walk and you just might find a juicy treat on your stroll. The South Florida mango trees come in many varieties. These delicious and healthy treats are also great additions to recipes. You can substitute mango with most recipes that call for sautéed or baked apples. This week’s Secret Recipe comes from our spiritual advisor Rev. Joel Slotnik.
