Mango Web Site and Broccoli Tips

National Mango Board Web Site Correction

In an earlier blog posting, the Web site for the National Mango Board was reported as Board spokeswoman Lindsay Lehfeld recently informed us that the Web site's address is If you haven't checked out this Web site yet, it's full of interesting and useful information on the mango, including announcements, delicious recipes, how-to videos and more. And for two more great recipes, read the "Mango Chicken Salad Recipe" article which features the mango in a delicious salad and a tasty dessert.

Buying Broccoli

Low in fat and high in fiber, potassium, calcium, and vitamins A and C, broccoli provides many health benefits to any diet. When buying broccoli, look for firm stalks with deep green or purplish green heads that are tightly packed. Avoid heads that are light green or yellowing. Keep broccoli in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. A cousin of broccoli, broccoli rabe, looks like a stalk of broccoli with sprouting spinach leaves. Both the stems and leaves have a somewhat sharp and bitter flavor. Broccoli rabe, which is also called rapini and is sometimes spelled "broccoli raab," must be kept well-chilled because it deteriorates quickly under warm conditions. To use it in recipes, tear it into bite-size pieces, discarding any wilted portions. Broccoli and broccoli rabe is also easy to grow in your garden. One great source for seeds is The Cook's Garden.
